To waste or not to waste? It’s the question we must ask ourselves when the corner of the cheese is turning color, the milk is a couple of days past expiration, or the bread is reaching that unchewable state. Fortunately, I found myself wondering what to do with some hardening Olde Hearth multigrain this morning. Because Olde Hearth Bread Company takes care to not include any preservatives or artificial flavors in their bread, you’ll want to eat it within the first couple of days of purchasing. However, if you forget about it in the pantry like I did, not to fear! You can whip up this delicious recipe (and make coffee…and do the dishes!) in less than 20 minutes. Check out the recipe below to start wasting less and eating more. Or, find more ideas for your stale bread at Olde Hearth’s website.
Olde Hearth Bread Co. Multigrain French Toast
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon sugar
3 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup milk …or cream : )
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
6 slices multigrain bread
1/2 cup maple syrup, warmed
In a bowl, whisk together cinnamon, sugar, eggs, milk, and vanilla and pour into a shallow dish like a pie pan.
In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Dip bread in egg mixture for 30 seconds on each side. Fry slices until golden brown, then flip to cook the other side. Serve with syrup, whip cream, powdered sugar…or whatever your heart desires!
