You can easily use leftover bread that you can no longer eat, instead of throwing it away. In this article, we have put together a few tips for you on what you can do with old but still good bread.
So you can use leftover bread sensibly
Since bread goes bad quickly, you may not be able to use all of it. If the bread is still too good to throw away, it is worth using the leftovers.
- Breadcrumbs: If you let leftover bread dry and then shred it with a grater or food processor, you have handy breadcrumbs. These are suitable as breading, for meatballs, or as an addition to a delicious soup.
- Poor knight: Dip the bread in a mixture of one egg and 100 ml milk and then fry it in the pan. This goes well with syrup, for example.
- Bread chips: Slice the bread, place on a parchment-lined baking sheet and lightly brush with oil. Mix some salt with garlic and spread it on the bread. Bake the chips in the oven at 180 degrees top/bottom heat for 15 minutes.
- Freezing bread: You can also freeze bread if you cannot eat it up or use it directly. So you can use it again at a later time.
Use old bread: recipe for a bread salad
If your bread has hardened but is still edible, you can use it to make a bread salad. You need 200 g bread, 200 g lamb’s lettuce, 300 g vegetables (pepper, tomato, courgettes), and a handful of nuts, salt, pepper, and herbs to taste.
- Break the bread into cubes.
- Marinate the bread with some vegetable oil and spices.
- Place the bread cubes in the oven on a baking tray lined with baking paper for 10 minutes at 180 degrees top/bottom heat.
- Chop the vegetables and place them in a bowl with the salad.
- Now add some olive oil and herbs, season with salt and pepper, and finally sprinkle the bread cubes over it.
