I finally got around to processing all the leftover/rock hard baguette pieces taking up valuable counter space. I must have 10-12 cups of bread crumbs. Now what? (Family of two!) I already had some in the freezer and I would really rather give them away or use them up asap. What can I do with them to use up the most possible? Their typical uses: stuffing veggies, coating things for frying, crab cakes etc.-- is not going to use up many of them.
I was wondering if I could somehow turn them into cheese crackers (a major weakness of mine)? Could i mix them with shredded cheese and butter and cayenne , and pat down a thin layer on a sheet pan? Score it before baking? or would they not hold together?
what about making a crust with melted butter (like a graham cracker crust) in a roasting pan and doing a gratin or quiche on top of that?
Has anyone actually seen anything like these ideas? or others? Thx so much for your help!
