There are just about as many uses for stale bread as there are for fresh. Stale bread is good for french toast, bread pudding, turkey stuffing, even making your own bread crumbs. There's no need to spend money on someone else's stale bread, just make your own.
Things You'll Need
- Baking sheet, optional
- Food processor, optional
- Cheesecloth, optional
Cut the bread into cubes if you are making breadcrumbs, croutons, stuffing or similar dishes. Leave the slices whole for french toast and similar recipes.
Place the bread on a baking sheet or other pan, or on a sheet of aluminum foil.
Cover loosely with cheesecloth and let it sit in a warm place overnight. If you don't have time to let the bread sit out overnight, place the pan, uncovered, in the oven for 30 minutes at 350 F.
