Sometimes cooking means throwing a bunch of stuff into a casserole dish and hoping it works.
This morning, that’s exactly what Lauren and I did.
We started off with some stale bread bits. Among the food I inherited from my previous roommates was a loaf of bread. The bread looked amazing but it had been sitting on the counter for a couple of days and was as hard as a rock. I could have used it as a bat. Instead of throwing it away, I sawed it down to crouton sized pieces and used them as the base layer for our casserole.
Then we added vegetables. We sliced a tomato, cut up a red onion and threw in some spinach. We topped it off with various cheeses and poured a carton of egg whites into the mixture. It was so easy, very cheap, healthy and DELICIOUS! We almost ate the entire casserole in one sitting.
What do you do with stale bread or old food?
