What to do with Stale Cuban Bread?

Make Bruschetta!

I had some Cuban bread that had gotten stale and got really hard.
I was about to dump it when I realized I could make yummy
bruschetta with my new toaster oven.

Here's the recipe:

  • Ingredients
    Stale Cuban Bread
  • Tomatos
  • Olive Oil
  • Basil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Parmesan Cheese (grated)

Cut the bread into thin slices. Drizzle some olive oil over the pieces of bread and sprinkle some salt, pepper, and basil. Cut tomatos into small cubes and place over bread. Repeat step 2-add more olive oil, salt, pepper, basil and now you can add some parmesan cheese.

Bake in toaster oven for about 15 mins and then switch to toast (on the settings).

Here, I served with the lemon, dill chicken from a previously posted recipe and broccoli, cheese rice (from a box).

does the bread come out toasty, or does it fall apart really easily?

i always try to salvage that horrible stale cuban bread lol... i'm going to have to try it your way!

I think the trick was to bake it first. Then, toast it. It didn't fall apart.

I tried it with French bread, too, but that one just gets too hard to even cut!
