Don't get rid of your old croissants or scraps from loaves of bread. "Virtually every type of bread can be used for crumbs, croutons, toasts, stuffings, to thicken soups, even lighten (and stretch) ground meat," says Georgeanne Brennan of the San Francisco Chronicle, who gives suggestions for what to make with leftover bread. Keep a bag of dried leftover bread in your freezer and you'll be able to make breadcrumbs, stuff vegetables, bake sweet or savory bread puddings, or toss them into a salad or pasta dish whenever you wish.
