Did your Baked Bread Bomb? Turn it into Toast.

You may be familiar with that loaf that looks okay, but doesn’t taste so okay.

A little butter and syrup hides a multitude of sins.

Baked bread mishap turned into toast

    Bread pudding or French toast can also cover a multitude of bread baking sins.

    I had half a hamburger bun left over last night and it was even better toasted and spread with butter and apricot-pineapple preserves. My extra hot dog buns (home made but a bit stale) tasted great when made into garlic toast. Sometimes we make happy accidents!

    The braid does look lovely. I have a recipe for an herb bread that I’ll bet you’d like, and it would be great braided. I made a frog out of mine 🙂

    Ain’t that the truth! It’s hard to mess toast up, of course – unless you burn it. Anyway, I noticed that you had some oatmeal on the plate. That’s some good stuff! And it’s good for you, too. BTW, if you make any type of jelly or preserves – maybe we can trade some of that, later!

    Why Cheryl 🙂 How long have you been baking? That loaf looks lovely I am very surprised that it tasted bad. Could you have gotten the ingredients wrong? Anyways you did find a nice way of hiding it. Although I must recommend honey it tastes alot better when washing the food down with coffee.

    Annie-I’m the only person in the house that likes bread pudding, and having no will power, I don’t think my hips would appreciate me cooking it and feeling compelled to eat all of itl. Herb bread sounds good. Maybe you’ll post the recipe. (Can you tell I like the way your pictures look on your blog? They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.)

    EG-It’s not burnt toast, it’s well done.

    I don’t really like oatmeal, but I know it’s good for you. I microwave it with a banana because I love bananas, and you don’t need to add any sugar if the bananas are ripe…although I’ve heard that the microwave kills I think it’s the micro organisms in the food. Can’t win for losing.

    I haven’t made preserves yet, although I’m reading about how easy it is. It’s something I’ll work on for the future.

    Melissa-I remember a time when the youngsters said that I didn’t cook anything. I’m trying to mend my evil ways.

    I think liking honey is an acquired taste, and I’m glad you’re using it. I still only like it in tea.

    Cheryl, I’m the only one here who will eat bread pudding, too. I found a really good recipe for a crockpot version, and I had to eat the whole thing myself. Now I can’t remember which of the three recipes I have that I used, and I don’t dare try them all…..I mean, one crockpot full is bad enough, but three? I’d have to eat them all!

    BTW, I’m flattered!

    EG-I’ve got to remember to use my LOLs and my wink-winks. No problem.
    I’m looking forward to The Package, and I’ll get your seeds out ASAP.

    Hi, Kristen:

    If I remember right the crust was okay, but the inside was too heavy and soggy. And I’m pretty sure this was the one that was too salty. The classic white that Annie posted did come out pretty good, though.
