A while back we chatted about the problem of uneaten sandwich crusts. Krista chooses not to fight that battle with her kids, and, instead, puts the crusts to good use elsewhere:
I cut off and save the crusts BEFORE I make the sandwich. I then do cool things with the crusts:
- I dry them out and then pulverize them in the blender for dried bread crumbs.
- I cut them into bite-sized cubes, toss with olive oil, salt, garlic and italian seasoning, and then toast them in the oven to make croutons.
- I toast the whole crust stick to make dippers for tomato soup or cream of chicken. Kids love dipping!
