Ideas for leftover bread that aren't breadcrumbs or bread pudding?

Looking for inspiration for what to do with the humble stale loaf :bread:

@anna2, try making a strata. It’s almost like a savory bread and butter pudding. You can add whatever you want to it so it’s really versatile. Here’s an example recipe:

@anna2 First off, welcome to the Karmunity!!! You can check out this website too :star_struck:

Of course the first two are breadcrumbs and bread pudding, BUT some of those others made my mouth water and and I am not even hungry :sweat_smile:

My favourites: Definitely French Toast!! But the Italian salad, meatballs and Casse-croûte looked delicious too :heart_eyes:

Looks yummy, thank you!

If its brown bread or sourdough you can fry it in pieces in butter and chopped garlic. Perfect snack with beer in Russia

You could also make croutons, they last for a long time and are a great addition for soups and salads!

Grenki are no exception: black bread, sliced into bite-sized pieces, fried in oil and smothered in crushed garlic, salt, and shredded cheese. It’s not caviar and Sovietskoe Champagne by any means, but at about $1.10 a plate, grenki are the perfect beer snack and my new favorite Russian food.26 juni 2008

You could make either french toast or crutons! Both are delicious and easy to make and can be made with stale bread☺️

Brazilian “Rabanada”. It’s similar to french toast, we eat during Christmas!

Put oven on hottest heat. Sprinkle loaf liberally with water. When oven hot place on baking sheet and pop loaf in oven for 5 mins. Now you have a fresh loaf. Thanks to my late Dad for that!
