“Leftover Bread” Bread

Yes, strange title lol. I saw something like this on Facebook a while back and only just got around to trying it.  As the title implies, it is made with “leftover,  ” stale bread, and turned into something great!



We had some french bread the other night, and there was still plenty left to try this.

I used the leftover /stale bread, oil, water, minced garlic, oregano,  tomato sauce and shredded mozzarella.


I began by breaking up the bread into about 1 inch cubes.

I added the oil, garlic, oregano and water and using my hands,  mixed it all together.



(This was the point where I was just dying to add onions and sage and turning it into stuffing lol!)


I pressed the bread mixture into a parchment paper lined pan,  spreading it evenly.


I spread the Tomato sauce all over the bread mixture.


And then topped it with the mozzarella and remaining oregano.


I baked it at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.


Once cooked,  I removed it from the oven and sliced it for dinner!


A great way to use up any stale or leftover bread!

      • I found a hardware store that has the heat-resistant glue you mentioned and I bought some! Now, to actually do what I have been planning, which should occupy an afternoon!

      • This is true! I did not say what I was doing. Sorry! I want to decorate my kitchen a little with some snazzy stuff, including some trivets and other things that can withstand 1) direct heat 2) indirect heat. My kitchen is very small so when the oven is on, anything near the oven also heats up a little, enough to soften a lot of different adhesives (so I’ve learned, very annoying). To add to the misery, my stove top and my kitchen sink have about 1 inch between them. I also wanted to make some things to hang on the wall, which is made of ceramic tile, and I can’t drill holes into the tiles, either. Add to this: between winter and late spring the walls “defrost” which often causes hooks to fall of the walls. A heat-resistant glue solves all my problems, but it has to be strong enough. You should have seen my kitchen the first hot day in May. Anything on the walls was on the floor! A hearty glue that resists severe temperature changes is also necessary, but this super glue you recommended seems, theoretically, to cover this second problem. Thanks for asking!

      • That sounds really cool. You should send pics when you are done. There are so many different things you could do to “snazz up” your kitchen. That sort of thing is always fun! I am contemplating refinishing my countertops myself instead of just replacing them. It will be a big job but could be worth it in the end.
        I’m sure you probably already know, but there are drill bits designed for drilling through ceramic tiles? Just thought it was worth a mention.
        Have fun with your kitchen project!!

      • I can’t drill holes in the tiles because it’s prohibited (I rent). My sister refinished her countertops with a marble design and later she undid it, so it’s possible to change it back to the way it was if you get tired of the new finish. Yeah, whenever I get around to doing this job I’ll photograph it, because I’ll have made some of the wallhangings myself. The big issue right now is getting some trivets done, where this glue will play a major role. I’m tired of the ones I’ve been using.

      • Thank you for letting me know it is changeable if I end up not liking how it turns out. That is one of my biggest worries… that I spend all that time refinishing it and I don’t like it or it doesn’t turn out as claimed.
        Yes, please take photos of everything. I hope the glue works well for your trivets… it’s funny, I have been thinking about making some with broken china pieces on a thin plywood backing. There are a lot of nice pieces of china at the thrift stores I wouldn’t have a problem breaking to use for something like that… or mosaic tiles… pieces of coloured glass… so many options.
