Somehow we always have leftover buns after we have hamburgers or hotdogs. I used to put them back into the package, throw them in the fridge, thinking I’d use them for sandwiches or something. I never did. I’d usually end up throwing them out.
That’s when I had an “aha” moment.
I now use leftover buns for homemade garlic “bread” with pasta. Just slather some butter & garlic powder on them, throw them in the oven at about 400 degrees for a little while (watch them carefully!**)… and they will toast up beautifully.
Aha – no more wasting buns, and possibly saving money on not buying garlic bread or something else. Yay! Try it next time you have leftover buns!!
** funny story… I have been known to make very well done (ok, burned) garlic bread. Last night I made some garlic bread out of leftover buns, and when Dave got home he asked the kids what was for dinner. One of them told him – “spaghetti and garlic bread. and it’s not even burned.” Haa.
