Do you ever make a sandwich or a piece of toast with a heel of bread just because you hate to waste it? Sure, you could feed them to the birds, but shouldn’t they be eating the pesky bugs hanging around your yard instead?

Want more options?

Here’s a better idea – save the pieces in your freezer until you have enough to make it worth the fuss of setting up the food processor. Pulse the bread a few times and presto! You have fresh breadcrumbs to use in your next recipe. Store in an airtight container in your fridge for up to a week, or in your freezer for up to two months.
