default How many uses are there for stale bread?

Post by Dandelion on 25th July 2010, 3:16 pm

Use number 1 - small cubes of bread (dampened if stale) never fail to coax/fool our chickens back into their run in an emergency. It has never failed yet!

Not to be confused with the equally delicious bread pudding which is easier to put in your lunch box!

This also works on courgettes with tomato sauce and gives it a bit of crunch

What about for stuffing or cleaning the mincer when you use it then it pads out the mince as well.

Has anyone else come across eggy bread? Stale bread thickly cut, soaked in beaten egg with a little milk, salt and pepper added until the liquid is absorbed. The soaked bread is then fried in butter on both sides. It was a childhood staple for us - you can make one egg do two pieces of bread if you're clever and you're short on supplies!

Mmmm Eggy Bread.

Eggy bread was a childhood fave and still is a fave brekkie for me and DD. However, I don't wait for the bread to go stale and if you use sliced bread or cut it thinly then I get 3 or 4 slices out of 1 egg & some milk

Pour boiling water over and use as a poultice when cooled slightly . . .

And then of course, there's always toast!

Is this for swollen joints, or infection?

With eggy bread, if you coat it in sugar & cinnamon when cooked it tastes like doughnuts.

I've heard it called 'Poor Knights of Windsor' (which sounds like a department store!!)

With the sugar & cinnamon I think Dandelion is right.

Without sugar & cinnamon is French Toast, as far as I know.

Will stick to eggy bread I think.

The book Grimble by Clement Freud contained several uses for stale toast as I recall. I will see if I can dig it out.

All our left over bread is crumbed and frozen in bags and then most become:

Delia’s Herb and Cheese Vegetarian Sausage

4oz mature Cheddar cheese grated
2 tsp fresh herbs chopped
5oz breadcrumbs
1 medium onion grated
¾ tsp mustard powder
1 large egg yoke
salt and pepper

plus for coating and frying:
1oz breadcrumbs
1oz parmesan grated
1 large egg white beaten
2 tbsp flavourless oil for cooking

Mix the dry ingredients together then mix in the egg. Divide into 12 portions and press with your hands into a sausage shape.

Mix the parmesan into the extra breadcrumbs. Dip the sausage into the egg white and then into the breadcrumb mix, coating it evenly.

Cook in the oil in a shallow pan. For 5 – 6 minutes turning as they cook to brown evenly.


A family favourite!

Dandelion - drawing out thorns and pus, or also, helping aching joints.

If you apply it to an infected spot which has a thorn or other foreign body in, it will draw out the object, or draw out the pus to aid healing


Onion halves heated and applied to a sore place work on the same principal, as do kaolin poultices, which seem mainly to be used for animals now but I remember having one applied to a septic spot on my leg, as a child...
