In an attempt to be innovative in our cooking, we are always searching for ways to transform one ingredient into something new. Bread has been a staple since way back when - heck, the pyramids were even built on a bread diet. So naturally we would want go-to recipes when the ends go stale, from bread soup to pudding and beyond. Home cooks and seasoned chefs alike are taking day old bread to task (check out chef Charlie Palmer's take on a quite shmancy french toast).
Here are a few recipes for an old loaf - make it new!
