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. If there are thick crusts on some breads, especially the bread I make in the bread maker, I cut them off before dicing them.
When I get enough I make bread pudding with milk, egg, and raisins, bread dressing/stuffing, etc. Bread cubes can be buttered and made into croutons for salads by toasting them in the oven. Put them on top of casseroles for a crunchy top or mix them into the casserole itself.
Toasted French bread makes good garlic bread or if just toasted plain can become zwieback. Toasted bread cubes can be sprinkled with seasonings and made into a snack in place of expensive chips.
