Recipes For Stale Bread
July 17, 2013 7:35 AM Subscribe
I have an endless supply of baguette and ciabatta, thanks to my current brokeness and my teenage background as a dumpster-diving crust punk (pun intended)
. It's preservative free, high quality french bakery bread that is about 12 hours old when I acquire it. It's already a little stale, and moulders within two days. I'm looking for tips on storage and for about a million recipes I can utilize to use it all up.

The bread goes rock hard if I keep it in a brown paper bag, and gets overly chewy and soft if I keep it in my bell jar/cake case. Is there a better method for storage?
What are some recipes? I'm looking for combinations for savory bread puddings
(if you just want to list ingredients, I can figure out milk/egg ratios) as well as tips for the most authentic New Orleans bread pudding with bourbon sauce and variations on it. What are some recipes that use insane amounts of bread crumbs? I've never made panzanella before. There have to be more variations on bruschetta than the usual. TELL ME HOW TO EAT ALL THIS BREAD.
