Bread that doesn't get used right away can go stale pretty easily. Don't throw it out though, there are plenty of delicious recipe that can make good use of that stale bread. This page contains recipes using stale bread.
Use up odds and ends of any kind of bread by mixing eggs, milk, vanilla, or other flavor (however you like your french toast) and then add all your bits and pieces of bread to the egg mixture. If it all falls apart, that's ok, because you will scoop it up and cook it in your waffle iron that's been heated and sprayed with a no-stick cooking spray. You'll have the easiest and best tasting waffles ever.

Hi, I am looking for uses for stale bread. I thought that would make a nice Brainstorm. Anne
French Toast in France is "pain perdu," which translates as "lost bread," since it saves bread which would otherwise be thrown out or "lost."
We have used day old hot dog buns topped with ingredients to make pizza bread. We have also used day old bread topped with butter and toasted as a side to Pasta's. Toasted cheese sandwich's are ok using day old bread.
Garlic bread, Michael: lol
Use loaf of STALE French bread cut into slices about an inch thick. You should get about 24 after sliced. Lay out on foil and on a cookie sheet a 9 x 13in shallow pan sheet standard should fit all or most of the 24 pieces then butter or margarine or "I cant believe it's not butter" them and generously add garlic powder, a pinch of tony's seasoning, or seasoning .Sprinkle with parsley flakes for flavor and color then lightly sprinkle Worcestershire sauce on each piece. Not too much just a few drops evenly if you can.
Broil in oven just until butter melts probably about 8- 10 min, and don't overdo. Immediately and generously dust with Parmesan cheese and serve immediately with steak dinner. I try to time the bread at the end of cooking process so that it comes out of the oven when I'm plating up the steaks. Makes a great snack too!
