What can I do with left over French bread? It's cut into bite size pieces.
Make bread pudding, stuffing, croutons or dry it and make bread crumbs. Good recipes at epicurious.com
French bread makes the best french toast, and you can make bite size french toast just as well as whole slices.
Beyond what has already been suggested, you could also toss them into the yard for birds/squirrels to eat. No one in our house wants to eat the heels of the bread, so unless I happen to need some fresh breadcrumbs (like meatloaf), I tear them up and toss them in the back yard. Happy, happy birds!
Take the pieces of french bread, saute them in butter, place them into a bowl of mushroom soup. Delicious.
Freeze it, then when you need some its there. When you have enough it makes great stuffing for a turkey and thats about the most economical meat going. My family likes french onion soup which is another use for it. Saute some onions and add water and a beef bouillon cube to make the soup; then in an oven proof bowl combine soup, bread and mozz. cheese and bake till cheese bubbles. This is so good on a cold day.
Toss with some melted butter and seasoning and bake for homemade croutons.
All those suggestions are great. It's also good for making strata.
Dip one inch cubes in Spaghetti sauce. place sauce side up sprinkle tops with cheese and chopped black olives. Toast under broiler til cheese melts kids love em after school with their friends. I chop up pepperoni really fine and put it under the cheese too.
My grandbaby loves them!
