My Bread Didn't Rise....Now what?

Ever make a homemade loaf of yeast bread only to have it not rise?  Or did something go wrong while cooking and you were left with a dense loaf that was thick and heavy?  After all that hard work you did preparing you loaf there is no need to throw it away!  Here are some uses for that loaf gone bad!

Bread Crumbs:
Slice the bread as thin as possible and toast.  Break up the toasted pieces and place into a food processor and pulse until fine crumbs are made.  Store in an airtight container in the freezer and they will last for months!

No matter what type of bread you made they can be made into delicious croutons.  For a plain bread season  cubed up pieces of bread with your favorite seasonings (i.e. garlic, rosemary, parsley, oregano, thyme) and salt and pepper.  Drizzle with a little olive oil and place onto a baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees until the pieces have toasted and are crisp.

Homemade stuffing:
Slice bread thin and toast.  Place into a zip lock storage bag and toss with 1 tablespoon of poultry seasoning and salt and pepper.  When your ready to use it mix in sauteed onions and celery with 1 tablespoon of melted butter and 1 cup of chicken broth.  Stuff a chicken or small turkey or place in a shallow baking pan and bake   until warm and top has crisped.

Never throw away another loaf!
