For some reason I have been finding myself with lots of leftover buns lately. Hot dog, hamburger, sub buns -- we're using about half of what I buy and the rest is going uneaten. Must be mismatched numbers of eaters and buns is all I can think. I don't like freezing them because they are never as good after they thaw. Besides feeding the ducks (and they should really eat cracked corn instead) I came up with a few uses for all my leftover buns. What do you do with yours?
Fresh bread crumbs -- just throw the bread/bun into the food processor and give a whirl. Place the fresh crumbs in a freezer bag and put them in the freezer until you make a meatloaf or meatballs.
Toasted bread crumbs -- put the bread in a 300 degree oven until it's completely dry and then do the same as you would with fresh crumbs.
Make a delicious bread pudding for dessert.
