If anyone has kids that don't like bread crusts (like mine!) or a family that won't touch the ends of the bread or any rolls that get too hard or stale, I have a great idea via my very frugal husband. I kept throwing away the cut off crusts of my son's peanut butter sandwich. My husband said, "Can't you do something with those?"
Hmmm... let me see. So I researched ideas online and at first I dried them and used them to make bread crumbs, doing something like this, though I used my smoothie maker. Even a coffee bean grinder would work:
Then when I had a bunch of that, I decided to research recipes for homemade dry stuffing mix and found this one:
And made five bags of it! We cooked it up like the recipe and it was great! All with bread crumbs from my son's sandwiches. Now this time of year, I was able to get boxes of Stove Top for 50 cents a piece, but this was something I made from something I had been wasting. How cool! Thanks hubby!
Bread pudding is another idea, but I haven't tried that... yet!
