birds eating breadMake some really good friends this winter of the birds that visit your yard or nest nearby. With all the snow we have and more to come, the birds (with no help from their people friends) have a hard time. Toss leftover bread, cake, broken down chips or other leftovers out to them. They will love you for it.

You could also turn the bird treat into a quick craft for kids by coating an apple or a pinecone with peanut butter and then rolling in crumbs or feed! Then, stand silently out of the way with your camera ready and you will love the photo ops!

I am looking for ideas for using leftover bread, either slices or bits and pieces. I already make croutons and dry and crush as bread crumbs. What else?

My mother would butter it, cube it, and put it in stewed tomatoes, with a touch of sugar. She would stir it in lightly when the tomatoes were hot and bubbly. It was actually real good. You can do this with fried apples, too.

For stuffing mix, put the dried bread cubes in a big, resealable bad. Add dehydated onions and herbs, and powdered chicken or beef boullon. When you want stuffing, make it like you do Stove Top. It's better than store bought.

I save it until I have enough for bread pudding. There are many recipes on line for this.

Stale bread slices are always great for French Toast, as they are drier and soak up more of the egg mixture without falling apart.

To make bread crumbs, toast the heels of bread and chop in a blender. You can use any bread that has gotten dried out; just keep in refrigerator until you have enough bread to make something (make sure it isn't moldy).


I use it to put in my soup. Place in oven at 375 degrees F until it start to get dried out. Remove from the oven. Try them in your soup. It is delicious. This saves a lot of money, and you don't throw away food.

I always have a couple of pieces of a loaf of bread left over that are getting dried up. I cut them into 3/4 inch cubes and store them in a zip-loc bag in the freezer.
