Introduction: Make Great Treats From Leftover Bread!
So... you bought a six back of frozen burgers instead of grabbing the ground beef an pattiying out... six burgers. darn! The buns come in eight packs. Am I to buy six 8 packs of buns and eight 6 packs of burger to make 48 servings! But I just have a family of four! Why do they make non-bun length hot dogs for that matter? Anyway, what do I do with the leftovers!?!
Step 1: Prep the Ingredients
So no matter what you choose there's still buns left over. Well, let's make something of it. What can be applied?
Step 2: Spread the Butter
Spread the butter on the bread.
Step 3: Pour on the Flavor
In this recipe we're making cinnamon roll style bread. For that we will use a cinnamon sugar mix. I generally use about 1 part cinnamon to 1 part sugar while other recipes use more sugar to cinnamon. Pouring the cinnamon sugar mix on the bread over a sink help eliminate mess. Go ahead and through the buns into a conventional oven and heat 'em up. 350*F on the bake setting or use a toast setting. About 5 minutes should be sufficient but you can heat to your preference.
Step 4: Mix the Icing
While the bread is cooking, pour some confectioners sugar in a dish, proportional to what you will need. Add just a drop of milk and stir well. The recipe I found this concoction from called for 1 tablespoon of milk to 3/4 cup of confectioners sugar, which makes a lot! The mixture will blend surprisinglngly well. If you have achieved a thick mixture that satisfies your taste you have succeeded!
Step 5: Spread It On! Serve
Drizzle the icing mixture on the bread If it doesn't spread well, try heating the mixture up shorty in the microwave.
Step 6: Other Options
If you end up with extra hot dog buns, sub-sandwich buns, or of coarse regular loaf bread, you can use them just the same. The cinnamon sugar can be substituted for a garlic salt blend, Rosemary and roasted dried tomatoes blend, or other delicious combinations including parmesan cheese to revamp a plain old bread.
