Is your favorite bread about to expire anytime soon but you’re running out of ideas what to make with them other than plain old toasts? Fret not, here are 5 recipes you can try to make sure your leftover bread doesn’t turn mouldy and go to waste!
- Measure flour into a large mixing bowl. Slowly whisk in the milk, and continue to whisk in the salt, eggs, cinnamon, vanilla extract and sugar until it becomes smooth.
- Heat a lightly oiled frying pan over medium heat.
- Soak the bread slices in the mixture until it’s all covered and saturated. Cook bread on each side until golden brown and then serve hot.
Classic Grilled Cheese Sandwich
- Preheat a frying pan over low heat.
- Spread mayonnaise over one side of each piece of bread and place the mayonnaise part down in the frying pan.
- Top with 2 slices of cheese and sprinkle some black pepper.
- Repeat step 2 with the other slice of the bread and place it on top of the other bread and cheese.
- Flip and grill until golden for 4-5 minutes or until you’re satisfied. Serve.
- Add the onion and capsicum into a small bowl before seasoning them with salt, chilli flakes and black pepper. Mix them together.
- Butter the bottom part of the bread slices.
- Add the tomato sauce onto the bread slices and spread evenly (Now you would have the top part spreaded with tomato sauce, and the bottom spreaded with butter)
- Bring back the onion and capsicum and put them on the bread slices.
- Add sausages or your other preferred toppings (Pepperoni would definitely be the best one!)
- Lastly, sprinkle the mozzarella cheese and dried parsley on top.
- Bake in the oven for approximately 15 minutes at 180°C then serve.
- Mix all of the ingredients of Ingredient B. Shred the bread slices and pour into the mixture of Ingredient B. Let it soak for a minute.
- Pour in half of the raisins along with the melted butter. Mix well before pouring into a lightly greased butter pan. Sprinkle the remaining raisins over the batter.
- Bake in the oven for 30 minutes or until it’s cooked at 180°C.
- For the custard sauce, mix all of the custard sauce ingredients into a pot until thicken.
- Pour on top of the baked bread pudding and you’re done! If you like it cold, put it in the fridge for a while before serving and pouring the custard sauce.
Homemade Toasted Breadcrumbs
- Preheat the oven to 120°C.
- With tongs, place the bread slices directly on the oven racks. Leave in the oven until they turn hard and golden brown for about 30 minutes.
- When it’s done, remove and cool on a wire rack.
- Crumble the slices into a large bowl until it’s crushed and reduced to fine crumbs. If you have a food processor, then your job gets even easier. All you need to do is process until fine.
