Cinnamon Sugar Bread Crust Treats, Leftover Cinnamon Sugar Breadsticks Recipe

1:57:00 AM

Most of the times, I purchased a bread loaf from outside for breakfast or sandwiches, for one reason or another, it doesn't get finished. I feel very bad when I throw into the bin, there's nothing worse than watching bread waste away.

Instead of letting it go to waste, I decided to play with it and make a "Cinnamon Sugar Bread Crust". The whole concept of left-over Bread Crust is very simple and easy to prepare. 


Serve it in any form as you like. This is best snack for breakfast or I can munch it anytime, either reading or writing my post (box of bread sticks is near to my laptop, enjoying it with writing my post :D).


They taste like cinnamon doughnuts, only crunchy and a lot healthier and faster to make.

Bread is one of the pretty fantastic food. It's incredibly versatile, which means if you have a lot of it left over, you can use it in ways you've probably never thought to before.

They’re ready in 11 minutes. These are great to pop into school lunch boxes (or work lunch boxes!) in little zip lock bags. 


Or pour them into a bowl and snack on them like popcorn for movie nights in or enjoy your bread sticks with the chocolate sauce, kids will loved it, I am sure or you can enjoy with your tea or coffee.

Are you looking for simple ways to use up your leftover Bread. Use your leftover bread crusts or stale bread for these treats that taste like cinnamon doughnuts. 


Cinnamon and Sugar goes well with these bread sticks, I feel they are made for each other, it taste like lightly sweet-salty bread crust sticks, personally I really loved it...totally awesome !!

I have taken this Ground Cinnamon bottle from Australia, they have natural flavors of cinnamon...A mildly sweet and delicate fragrant flavour, I am very happy of using this product of MasterFoods, hope I'll get this product easily available in India otherwise I need to use it very small quantity of it..LOL !!

You can make it with any kind of bread either a day old or stale bread. Stale bread is dry and leathery. 



I have used that stale one because it doesn't soak up the butter as much, which means it gets distributed better.
 

!! SAVE MORE BY WASTING LESS. YOU JUST NEED TO BE GET A BIT CREATIVE !!

Let's start this easy and crunchy recipe of cinnamon sugar bread crust treats with step by step photos.

Ingredients :

Day-old/Stale Brown bread crusts, cut into sticks - 2 cups
Melted salted/unsalted butter - 2 tbsp / 50 gm (I used Amul butter)
Sugar - 2 tbsp (separate 1/2 tbsp)
Ground Cinnamon - 1/2 tsp

Preparation Method :

1. Preheat oven to 180 deg C.


2. Cut crusts into 3cm/1.5" pieces. Place bread crusts in a large bowl. 


3. Drizzle over butter, tossing the bread crusts as you go (with your other hand) to evenly distribute as best as possible.

4. Sprinkle the sugar and cinnamon over the bread sticks and and toss through.

5. Arrange the bread-sticks in a single layer on a baking tray.


6. Bake it, until golden brown and crunchy (check the ones in the middle of the tray). The tray on the top rack will be ready first, it will take 5 minutes. The bottom rack will take a couple of minutes longer approx 6 minutes. 

7. While hot, sprinkle over the remaining 1/2 tbsp of sugar. This is mainly for appearance purpose.


8. Store it in a air-tight container.

~ Important Note ~

* The amount of sugar and cinnamon depends on your preference so adjust accordingly to what you like. You can also use olive oil to replace the butter as a healthier alternative.

* Stale bread works better than fresh because it doesn't soak up the butter as much, which means it gets distributed better.
