do any of you master chefs out there have a recipe for bread pudding or maybe have ideas what to do with a few possibly stale packages of hearty wasa brod.

you could easily make bread pudding from it (or look at uses for matzoh, like sweet casserole [matzoh brie] or mina [like a greek moussaka, spinach casserole thing]. Or croutons, or toast them to make things to dip in hummus (or whatever you like to dip in).

We so rarely have any bread left over, but when we do I like to give it the Ethiopian treatment- leftover injera flatbread is used as the base for a lot of dishes, generally called fitfit. My favorite is a tomato salad with bread that reminds me of panzanella, but it is also fried up with butter and honey for a breakfast. You can really do anything with it. If you were to break up the wasa and wet it, I bet it woudl be pretty similar.

I've had wasa bread on many a canoe trip.  I found a better substitute for it that is roughly the same visually, weighs a little less and tastes much better.  Also, it's a good use for excess corrugated cardboard.  

Hope you find a way to use them.

I'd grind it up and use it for breading.  With a lot of salt and other seasonings, as there's not much flavoring intrinsic to the bread.

Put them in the oven on a low heat for 10 minutes they will crisp back up when they cool down and be as good as new.

Put them in the oven on a low high heat for 100 minutes.  They will become biochar when they cool down and be as good as better than new.

Honestly, I get the feeling that nobody here has ever actually eaten wasa bread.  It's a fact* that 73% of all cases of Giardia infection (Beaver Fever) is a direct result of consumption of wasa bread.  A 1993 study by the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, MB documented that the majority of giardiasis cases started like this:

Brenda:  "You shouldn't drink untreated lake water!"
Infected:  "I already drank all the treated water that I have!  A whole gallon and I'm still thirsty!  It's that damned wasa bread!"

Seriously, folks.  Have we not become much more virus savvy?

*possibly** not an actual fact

**definitely
