Bread getting stale? Don't toss it (and throw away money, too!) There are plenty of creative options for when your bread is less than fluffy and fresh! Toasting it is a quick cover up. What about making french toast or a strata, homemade croutons are simple to make and so are homemade bread crumbs! Buns passed their prime? (Sandwich buns, people! This post won't help those "other" buns!) I like to use them to make individual garlic toast rounds. A little softened butter, some garlic, parsley, a hot oven and you're in business! You can also use them to make a toasted sandwich. Just add your favorite sandwich filling, wrap in foil and pop in the oven til hot. Yum! What are your favorite ways to use up bread gone "a-rye?"
