In my latest quest to cut the old grocery bill down to a manageable amount, without sacrificing my desire for good food, I’ve reacquainted myself with an old friend, day old bread.
Now, I’m not talking just any day old bread. I’m talking the good kind, the artisinal kind, if you will. Like this loaf of jalapeno cheddar baked at a local bakery.
I bring it home and slice it up. I wrap each set of two slices in wax paper, tape it up and put it back in it’s bag. The ends, that are too small to be sandwich slices, I cube. And into the freezer they go.
Then when I’m making my lunch, I pull out a package of the sliced ready to go, make my sandwich and wrap it back up in the wax paper. Easy peasy.
I use the cubes for croutons, bread pudding, or fresh breadcrumbs. These babies, I think would be wonderful in a breakfast sausage and egg casserole.
