When I worked on the river, I use to take my leftover bread dough and fry it. I would put powdered sugar on it and those guys/gals would eat it up. Has anyone used leftover bread dough in other ways? If you have post them here so everyone can see what you did with it. Thanks, Geno.

Was that some kind of sweet bread (like for sandwiches)?
I make sourdough bread all the time and if frying up dough I would season it in a savoury way, for example with chopped chives (as I do with sourdough excess) and dip in soy sauce, salsa, sour cream.

If I bake sandwich bread, I only make the exact quantity I need and have no leftover.
For sourdough loaves, I always keep a bit of dough for the next batch which I add then in addition to the regular sourdough. Gives a moist crumb and a deeper flavour than sourdough alone.

Other than that, I would consider making crackers or breadsticks - but your way with frying it up if you don't have an oven sounds like a good idea.

But it really depends on the kind of dough you have available.
For regular, savoury dough with yeast I would also consider making some kinds of empanada or coca (Spanish recipes, like a covered pie with different fillings) that require yeasted dough.

I guess it would be like funnel cakes, only with the leftover dough. Geno

We had a bread pudding thread a while ago. That's how my mother used up old bread. Wow, that was wonderful stuff.

You'll find me in my office. I'll probably be drinking. And reading this tiny ad.
