How to Save Stale Bread: 7 Surprising Tricks

Everyone should know these amazing tricks. The simplest dish is fresh bread with a crispy crust. Its smell has a dizzying effect, stimulating appetite and pleasant emotions. But what to do if the bread is dry? Everyone should know these amazing tricks.

Surprisingly, after only a couple of hours, bread becomes the most mediocre product and loses its magical, appetizing properties, and in a day we already call it stale.

Before throwing away stale bread and other baked goods, try to make them soft again.

How to make stale bread crispy:

  • Put the bread on a baking sheet, sprinkle it with water, and put it in an oven preheated to 150 degrees for 3-5 minutes.
  • Cut the loaf of bread into slices no more than 1 centimeter thick. Put them in a sieve or colander and place them in a pan of water. In this case, the sieve should not touch the water; a gap of several centimeters should be left between them. Then turn on the gas and, after the water boils, keep the bread over the steam for five minutes.
  • Put the slices of bread in the microwave and set the timer for 10-60 seconds, depending on the volume and degree of stale bread.
  • Cut the bread into slices, and dip each in water for 2-4 minutes, depending on the degree of stale bread. Then put them on a baking sheet, and put them in the oven preheated to 158-160 degrees for 10-15 minutes.
  • If the bread is not too stale, you can put it in a small saucepan, close the lid, and put it in a large saucepan filled with boiling water. Keep the bread in the pot until the water has cooled.
  • Wrap the bread in a damp paper napkin, leave it for five minutes, then unwrap it and put it in a preheated 150-degree oven for 10-15 minutes.
  • Put a sheet of damp paper on a baking sheet, place the bread on it, cover it with a napkin soaked in water, and put it in a not-too-hot oven for 3-5 minutes.
