How to Dry Out Bread

Don't Have Day-Old Bread? Here's How to Fake It

Dishes like stuffing, french toast, stratas, and bread pudding may be thrifty ways to give yesterday's bread a second life, but that doesn't mean that there's always stale bread on hand when a craving hits. Instead of buying a loaf only to wait an extra day to get your carb fix, try this simple trick for near-instant stale bread:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Slice the bread into the size specified by the recipe. If your recipe calls for no crusts, remove them now.
  3. Arrange the slices or cubes into a single layer on a half-sheet pan. Do not season or coat the bread with oil.
  4. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until the bread is toasted and dry, but not browned.
  5. Use the dried-out bread in your recipe.
