Save That Bread

If you have leftover bread you can do many things with it. This includes making croutons for salads, you could also make bread pudding, french toast for breakfast or even for dinner. Finally, you can get some herb-infused olive oil to dip the bread in as an appetizer. Bread is so useful and there’s no need to throw the leftover bread away!

Rice can be re-used as well. For example, if you have a great deal of rice left over you can make pudding or meatballs with it. Both rice and bread are great leftovers to have available for cooking. 

Got Lettuce?
