We don't know about you, but we've become a bit obsessed with bread during lockdown. If we're not knocking together a sourdough loaf, we're eating slice after slice, slathered in butter.
But there's nothing more annoying than when your tasty loaf goes stale just a couple of days in.
That's why we were thrilled to discover there's actually a way to bring old bread rolls back to life, and it couldn't be easier.
You don't need any fancy ingredients of baking know-how to salvage your bread. Simply wet it and then place it in the oven for a couple of minutes.
That's literally it...
The tip was shared by one woman on Facebook group, Budget Friendly Meals Australia.
She wrote: "I've been conscious of reducing my waste and the job of using up stale bread rolls has always been a problem.
"There's only so many breadcrumbs I can keep in the freezer and my kids aren't a fan of defrosted rolls.
"My mum told me a trick her mum used to do back in the day, and it really works."
When running the loaf under the tap, it only needs a splash of water, otherwise it will just go soggy.
You can even dab it with a damp tea towel to achieve the same effect.
When you put it in the oven, make sure its at a low heat, and you don't leave it unchecked for too long.
It's important to remember that this trick only works on an unsliced loaf, so your pre-sliced Hovis might be unsalvageable... sorry!
But it's still a great tip for a loaf that's slightly past its best, or if you've baked a bunch of mini bread rolls and not got round to munching them all yet.
BRB, just off to salvage all our stale bread!
