9 Recipes To Use Leftover Bread Crusts

We throw out around 24 million slices of bread every day in the UK! What a waste of perfectly good food and money. Freezing your bread loaf and using just what you need if one of the best way to prevent wasting it. Amongst the avoidable food waste are leftover bread crusts which some people prefer not to eat.

At home it is an ongoing battle with my kids. They swift through bread slices as if the crust ends had something wrong with them. I would like to point out that this is not a inherited behaviour as bread crusts are my favourites and I gladly become the human dustbin.

They are so many recipes you can make with stale bread, it is really a shame to let it go to waste. The easiest is to add them to soups (such as ribolitta) or salads (such as panzanella). Leave it to the Italians to find delicious ways not to waste food šŸ™‚
