After I began working from home, I realized that I had the special opportunity to be able to cook at home every day. While most people were working until later in the afternoon, I had time to go to the grocery store, get what I needed, and make a lovely dinner for my family to enjoy. In addition to helping my kids to enjoy better health, I was also able to hone my cooking skills, which was really fun. Now I can honestly say that I love cooking and preparing food, and I wanted to make a blog that centered around my new passion. Check out this website for great tips on cooking and enjoying foods each and every day.
If you recently purchased kaiser rolls from a bakery to create sandwiches for a potluck or backyard party, you may find that you have some that were not eaten. Instead of letting them go to waste and throwing them out, try one of the following ways to use your leftover kaiser rolls.
1. Create Individual Mini Pizzas
One way you can use up your old kaiser rolls is to create individual mini pizzas. Not only do they taste good, but you can turn the creation of these pizzas into a fun night with the family by allowing everyone to make their own the way they want it.
After cutting the kaiser rolls in half, give each person one so they can go down a line of ingredients. You can have a bowl of sauce to start, followed by a couple of different cheeses. Then you can let everyone select their own toppings, offering such things as pepperoni, green peppers, onions, and mushrooms.
Once everyone has made their own pizza, place them on a pizza pan or cookie sheet, and bake them in the oven for 10 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. Have Homemade Croutons with Your Salad
Another way you can use your leftover kaiser rolls is to create your own croutons you can keep for inclusion in your salad. You can personalize the flavors by soaking them in an olive oil base that is seasoned to your liking.
For example, if you want garlic croutons, you can make them in one of two ways. First, you can simply add garlic powder to the oil right before you soak the bread cubes. Second, you can crush a few cloves of garlic and let them sit in the oil overnight before adding the cubes. You can also add Italian seasoning and grated parmesan cheese to the mixture.
After soaking the bread cubes in the flavored oil for a few minutes, place them on a cookie sheet that is lined with wax paper to keep the croutons from sticking. Then, bake them in the oven for about 15 minutes at 400 degrees, then let them cool down and dry out before placing them in a sealed plastic bag for storage.
When you come up with different ways to use your leftover rolls, you can create tasty additions to your meals and save money by not letting the bread go to waste. Speak with the bakery from which you purchased your kaiser rolls for more ideas on how to use the leftovers.
