Squashed Bread

Don’t you just hate it when you go to the grocery store and by the time you get home your loaf of bread is flattened??

Squashed Bread

My Granny would’ve refused to eat it because it is ruined.  My Grandmother would have given me a lecture on how wasteful today’s young people are and that there could be an alternative use for it.

There are a number of uses for squashed bread…..

1.  Make French toast:  a couple of eggs and two cups of milk beaten together in a bowl.  Dip slices of bread into the egg/milk mixture.  On a griddle brown both sides and remove.  Sprinkle  cinnamon sugar or powdered sugar over the toast.  Serve with syrup.  EASY AS PIE!!

2.  Make bread pudding.  My Granny made the best.  Check out her recipe.

3.  Make croutons.  This is unbelievably easy to do…..

Cut your bread into cubes

Slice and Dice

Cubes Rule!!

Cubed Bread

Drizzle Olive Oil over the cubes.


Sprinkle Garlic Salt over the cubes.


Toss to coat….

  1. Man! Squashed bread is worse that a wet sock on your foot! Great ideas on what to do with it! I hate salad but love crotons….never thought about putting them in soup!

  2. My bread was squashed yesterday, and I had no idea what to do with it. Thank you for the great ideas!

  3. Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and all. However imagine if you added some great photos or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and clips, this website could certainly be one of the best in its niche. Superb blog!
