👩‍🍳【Bread Dumplings】

  1. Break up crusts, add herbs and a little milk to combine.

  2. Add some grated cheese if you wish.

  3. Take a tbsp of the mix and make into a ball shape. Brown off the balls then add to soups and casseroles.

  4. These are easy to freeze too.

👨‍🍳【Fake Bacon Bits】

  1. Slowly oven cook bacon on a tray.

  2. Once removed place breadcrumbs made from the crusts on the tray, move them around a bit to soak up flavour and bake on a low heat 120C for 20 mins or until the breadcrumbs have dried out.

  3. Store in airtight container and add as a soup , pasta or use as a salad topping.
