Five ways to save your dough and recycle old slices of bread
USE your bread to save money while reducing waste.
Bread that is a bit past its best days can still be perfectly enjoyable with a little know-how.
Here are five easy ways to make the most of stale discs.
YOU BIG SOFTIE: Fresh stale bread with a simple trick.
Spray the slice with water and then place it in the oven or air fryer to warm it up.
The bread will then soften up nicely when it’s done, but eat it right away as it will quickly start to harden.
IN THE SOUP: Croutons are perfect for soups or salads and are a great way to use up stale slices.
Tear or cut into bite-sized pieces, brush with olive oil and a pinch of salt and bake in the oven for about ten minutes until crispy.
You can also try different herbs and spices for different flavor combinations.
TO BRING A TOAST: Make a premium toasted cheese sarnie with stale bread by buttering the outside of the loaf before placing it in a toastie maker.
You can also make a toasted sandwich by frying it.
Butter the bread again on the outside, then sear in a preheated pan for a few minutes on each side, until the cheese is melted.
PUD IN THE TROUBLE: Turn stale slices into a feel-good treat with bread and butter pudding. Cut the bread into triangles and cut off the crust.
Butter both sides and layer in a buttered ovenproof dish, adding a pinch of sultanas or redcurrants as you go.
Then pour pudding into the bowl to cover the bread and allow to soak or toss the bread to make sure everything is coated in the mixture.
Add a little sugar before baking until golden brown, about half an hour.
Cracking Idea: Use stale bread for this classic breakfast treat. Start by whisking a few eggs with a dash of milk, then brush the slices with the mixture.
Fry the bread in oil or butter for a few minutes on each side before serving.
