smashed bread

KaimukiMan | Dec 17, 2012 11:32 AM

On the way home from the grocery store i had to swerve and slam on the brakes to avoid a boy chasing a basket ball which had rolled into the street (chased by an adult - eyes wide with panic). The child and basketball both survived.

When I got home I found that 4 loaves of bread (on sale 2 loaves for 4.50) in the trunk had not survived. The other groceries had spilled on top of them mashing and mangling them. I saved about 1/3 of each loaf. The rest is pretty flattened, a bit torn, but the bags didn't puncture so the bread isn't dirty, and I hate throwing brand new food away. Any suggestions what to do with it? Would it make decent bread crumbs? Bread pudding?
