My friend, Lori, shared this secret with me and I do this all of the time. Go to the discounted bread section of your grocery store and find a cheap loaf of bread. Any kind will work. I have used Italian, Ciabatta, wheat, honey wheat, and white. Wrap it in foil, place directly into the oven and bake for about 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees. Serve. You will be amazed at how good the bread will taste, totally fresh and totally homemade! Try it, I know you will enjoy it!
This was a 50 cent loaf of Italian bread from a few days ago and it turned out great!!
