baking with bread cubes
When you've got a really big, really dense loaf of bread to eat up, it's time to get creative. I don't think my food looks/photographs as beautifully as some, but here's what I've come up with so far. Both things did taste good :-)
Stuffed tomatoes and eggplant: the bread mightily resisted being turned into crumbs, so I made this with tiny cubes of bread instead. Filling: eggplant, tomato, tiny bread cubes, fresh mozzarella, parmesan, onion, garlic, fresh basil. Served with green and golden zucchini sauteed in butter with onion. Some filling is missing from the upper left of the eggplant because it was served to our dwarf hamster for dinner. Spoiled pets ;-)
Sweet bread pudding with fresh blueberries, dried cherries, and walnuts -- my stove/oven is tilted, causing the blueberries to migrate to one side of the pan.
One more pound of bread to go!
