Thanks to Julie’s comment and post, I learned about a discount bakery that sells bread items by the cartload. The discount bakery sells this bread for $5 for a cart! I didn’t realize quite how much bread it was, but we estimated that at a low cost, it would be at least $100 worth of bread. I was a little disappointed that I didn’t get any bagels or very many whole wheat items, but perhaps that depends on what day you go. The bakery mentioned that the bread truck comes every day except Wednesday.
So, what did I do with it and what else can be done with leftover bread?
What I did:
- Made lots …
- Made cinnamon chips
- Cubed and froze
- Froze several loaves whole
- Gave some away
- Froze some torn off pieces to use in casseroles/quiches
Here‘s a great tip to get all the air out of the bags with a straw!
What else can be done with leftover bread? (I’m planning to use most of these!)
- bread pudding (yum–I love this!)
- french toast
- dry it out and make bread crumbs (used in many recipes)
- use it in meatloaf
- bread patties
- feed it to ducks/geese (if feeding them bread is already encouraged)–fun for kids!
Going from the downtown Greenville area, take Cedar Lane/253 towards Pickens until it intersects with 25 (White Horse Road), and take a right. Continue past the Hamricks/Save-More shopping area and it is on the right. (I didn’t see an address).
Other places to buy bread inexpensively in Greenville:
- Entenmann’s Bakery: You can almost always find bread quality for $1 or less.
- That’s a Dollar near Walmart on Wade Hampton (Taylors):
- They sell day-old Pepperidge Farm breads for $1; the bread is delivered on Tuesdays and Fridays
