What To Do With Bread Crust

1) Dip it in your yogurt and eat it (a favorite of my kids).

2) Feed it to your chickens.

3) Feed it to the birds.

4) Freeze it for later so you can...

5) Make homemade croutons.

6) Make homemade bread crumbs.

7) Make Pineapple Stuffing.

8) Make regular stuffing.

9) Make Ham or Sausage and Cheese Souffle.

10) Make Spinach (or Chard) and Cheese Strata

11) Make Savory Tomato Bread Pudding.

12) Fool your kids and make them a sandwich, crust-side-in

or, last but not least...

13) Buck up and eat it.

What do you do with bread crusts?

  1. My husband loves them. He uses them as an excuse to slather on a little more butter than he normally would!

    I thought all of your suggestions were great!

  2. I use them for bread crumbs. We always need bread crumbs for some reason.

  3. I always do option 12, only it's my darling husband I'm fooling, not children. :-)

  4. Sigh...I wish my family liked strata type dishes as much as I do. That looks delicious!

  5. Wow those all sound great but we NEVER have any crusts left... in fact we usually don't have enough crusts to go around!!

  6. I've made your pineapple stuffing before with crusts... it's yummy :)

  7. Make bread crumb cookies:

  8. Those are great ideas. I just eat it.

  9. Make a terrific cheeseburger casserole! In a 9 by 13, layer: bread cubes, fried ground-beef (w onion and s and p), chopped pickle and celery, grated cheese, squirts of ketchup and mustard, and top with more bread cubes. Mix together 2 eggs and 3/4 c milk and pour over all. Bake at 350 for 1/2 hour.
    You can really put anything into these layers, depending on what you like. I always keep a bag of odd bread pieces going in the freezer until I have about 10 slices' worth, for this recipe.
    Thanks for sharing your ideas, too. Gotta try some of those.

  10. The crusts don't get differentiated from the regular bread around here. But I do use bread to make the things you mentioned. Just did a post on why I save breadcrumbs from the cutting board :)


Just a friendly reminder, if you know me personally please try to refrain from using my name. There are those who may try to locate me, break into my pantry and steal my pickled beets. Thanks:-).
