Bread-end Brown Butter Pudding

Bread-end Brown-butter Pudding

Preparing puddings from leftover crust ends of cut sandwich bread is a simple way of not wasting food. Place the bread in a ziploc bag and freeze until needed. Here there are about 3 cups worth of crusts. Flavour it with all your favourite spices. Add some nuts and raisins for texture. Sweeten it to taste. And butter the dish very generously. It will be perfect each time.
