But want some of that good gravy you made from the bacon drippings? Not a problem! I nearly threw away a half loaf of French bread this morning. It was several days past day old. Aha! Brought out the food processor and gave it a whirl, reduced it to crumbs. Spread those on a baking tin and toasted them in the oven for a few minutes. I suppose you could do the toasting on the stove top in another pan with the added bonus of using a bit of butter “just for the color”.
