But seriously, it’s time to rekindle our love for bread because it can seriously be a game changer because it is so versatile! So here are a few facts and tips that we’d think will help you sort out your bread wastage.
- Keep your bread in a cool, dry place and air tight
- If you want to prolong the life of your bread we recommend to store your bread in the freezer rather than the fridge. (FYI: Placing it in the fridge can actually do more harm than good!)
When life gives you stale bread. Make croutons. Seriously, they’re quick, delicious and they take your salads from 0 to 100 real fast.
- Bread crumbs
If you want your schnitzel game to be strong, we recommend you make your own batch of bread crumbs – its actually the SCHNZIT(zel). Check out our recipe to get the hook up.
Who can say no to meatballs? Stale bread is a great way for you to shape meatballs because they retain all the moisture.
- Bread and Butter Pudding
We thought we’d end on a sweet note so our last recipe is a dessert. Bread and Butter Pudding is essentially a warm hug in the form of a dessert. Perfect for winter (or any season really) and will impress all your friends.
