    Bead is one item that every household keeps a stock of. What stays in the fridge for days may not quite taste the same when it was fresh. This bread can be used for making tasty snacks. Here is one

    - Break the bread into pieces and soak it just enough water
    - Chop onions, green chilli, coriander leaves
    -Separate the bread from water and add the chopped chilli and onions. Add salt to taste
    -Make balls and deep fry.
    -Whip curds (yoghurt) adding sugar.
    -Dip the fried bread balls in the curd mixture
    -Sprinkle with coriander and red chilli powder

    Easy Indian-style snack, and since the bread gets broken up and dipped it'd be easy to use with gluten-free bread.

    For leftover bread, the usual food we make from it is the traditional pudding. Mixing with one egg, a can of condensed milk, sugar and garnishing like raisins and cheese bits, it is easy to bake. Another way of making good use of leftover bread is to make bread pizza. All you will need is tomato paste, chesse of any kind (but cut in strips or bits), bell pepper for the pizza effect, meat of any kind like spam or bacon. You can also add some vegetables like cucumber slices or zucchini.

    Why are you putting your bread in the fridge? That makes it go stale a lot faster!
    No wonder you're looking for alternatives to ue lessthan fresh bread for.

    My tip, freeze what you're not immediately using. That way you always have fresh bread, no waste.
    Also, NEVER put bread in the fridge.

    As you rightly said pudding is kind of traditional. We too make it often. I caramelise the vessel in which the stuff is put and I also add some sun dried apricots and the stuff that you have mentioned. I have not tried using it for pizza. Is the bread mixed with the stuffing?

    Thank you for your suggestion. Our freezer is always loaded. Anyway the dish that I have discussed here is something I like very much and so may as well use leftover bread than fresh one. Leftover bread is easy to turn into balls. We have a similar recipe using some other ingredients but using bread is simple as we do not have to grind the urad (black gram) dal which is one of the ingredient for the other recipe.

    That sounds like an easy way to use leftover bread. I like to make bread pudding. This is one way to use leftover bread, milk and eggs as well. I made some recently and it was quite delicious. I thought it was a tasty way to use bread that I had leftover. It was one of the things that I could easy think of to use the bread.

    Making pudding from leftover bread is something we all do but I thought of a snack instead and realised this snack does taste great. I normally make it for breakfast when we do not eat sweet things in isolation.

    Do you bake or steam your pudding. I prefer it steamed. I also caramelise the dish before putting in the stuff.

    Slight staleness/dryness is a key ingredient in some recipes that use breadcrumbs; fresh, soft crumbs won't work! (If you have only fresh soft crumbs, half an hour in a very slow oven will boost them along the way to the texture these recipes require.)

    I bake it in the oven, but in kind of a steam bath similar to a custard. I have never really tried making a steamed pudding, but I am guessing it would be delicious. I know alot of plum puddings and so forth are steamed. I might try a steamed pudding just for fun sometime.

    Steaming is quite the thing in our household. We even steam left over food rather than heating it up again. Normally left over food dries up a bit and steaming moisturises it and gets back its freshness

    I think there are plenty of recipes that you can do with the bread. I have found that leftover bread can be used to make some of the dishes such as cheese sandwich. I have found out that some of the bread recipes can be also made with the vegetables salad. I have found that it can depend on what's available in the kitchen. I have found we can also use it like tacos.

    I do.
    When I met my Mrs. she used to fridge bread too. o.0

    It's so weird to me, as when you put it against storing it simply on the kitchen counter ion an airtight environment the fridge will shorten it's shelf life - regardless of how it's stored in the fridge.

    Bread and Butter pudding with custard

    French Toast

    Bread crumbs

    Croutons (cook and store in a jar, stay good for ages)

    Fridges draw the moisture out of bread, even more so when you freeze it.
