So you have pieces of leftover bread in your kitchen with an expiry date coming up --- do not fear because you can always come up with something creative to make people want to eat them. What pleases the eyes more than less will please the taste buds as well. So, here is my simplest tip… ready?
Toasted bread strips with a dip or two of your choice!
1.] Place those boring old bread on the your chopping/slicing board. Cut them into sticks [length and thickness of your choice].
2.] On a hot frying pan, add olive oil or butter then toss in some freshly chopped garlic. Fry until golden brown then remove from the pan.
3.] Place your bread sticks on the pan.
4.] Sprinkle the sticks with salt.
5.] Sprinkle dried rosemary or thyme.
6.] Fry all sides of the bread sticks until golden brown.
7.] Arrange them in a tall glass or bowl.
8.] Serve with the dip of your choice [tip: garlic dip or sour onion dip or cheese dip are great with bread sticks].
There you go. No need to throw away those old bread! Simple, easy and delish! Great while watching telly or when blogging. Try it!
