Reheating Bread

Warm bread is always nice to serve with salad and snack meals. Put uncovered crusty loaves in an oven heated to 400°F (200°C) or Gas no. 6 for 5 minutes to warm and crisp them. Crusty rolls need only 2-3 minutes. Pitta bread can he reheated by placing under a hot grill for 2-3 minutes.

Slightly stale loaves can be freshened by loosely wrapping them in kitchen foil and placing in an oven heated to 425°F (220°C) or Gas no. 7 for 5-10 minutes. Let bread cool in the wrapping and serve warm. Rolls or scones can be placed in a baking tin and covered closely with kitchen foil. Breads reheat without drying out and will emerge as freshly baked; they are best served warm, not hot.

Frozen bread can be wrapped loosely in kitchen foil and placed in an oven heated to 400°F (200°C) or Gas no. 6 for 45 minutes to thaw. Frozen rolls will take 15 minutes. Let bread cool a little in the foil wrapping and serve warm. Remember, sliced bread can be toasted from frozen.

Home-made bread is wonderful toasted it becomes so crisp and crunchy without drying out. Try using home-made bread for toasted cheese sandwiches it will make all the difference.
