Celebrating National French Bread Day: What Can You Do With French Bread?

Every March 21st, we celebrate National French Bread Day—a day to appreciate the soft, chewy deliciousness of one of the world’s most beloved breads. But what can you do with french bread? Sure, it’s great for sandwiches, but there’s so much more you can do with this versatile ingredient. Let’s explore some creative ways to use french bread in your cooking!

There are a few basic things that everyone should know about french bread before they get started. First and foremost, it’s important to make sure you purchase fresh-baked loaves from your local bakery or grocery store. If you have time, try to find ones made with unbleached flour for a more authentic flavor. Now let’s get into a few fun recipes!

French Toast Casserole

This is an incredibly easy way to enjoy both traditional french toast flavors and crispy baked bread all at once! Just cut your loaf of french bread into cubes and put them in an oven-safe dish. Then mix together eggs, milk, sugar, and any other desired ingredients (cinnamon is always a classic!) and pour the mixture over the cubed bread. Bake until golden brown and serve warm with maple syrup or honey on top.

Garlic Cheese Focaccia

A great twist on focaccia is adding garlic cheese spread into the dough before baking! To make this variation of focaccia, start by mixing together softened butter with garlic powder and shredded cheese (cheddar or mozzarella work great). Once everything has been fully combined, gently fold it into your pre-mixed french bread dough until completely incorporated. Form the dough into a round shape before baking in the oven until golden brown and bubbly on top! Serve hot as an appetizer or as a side dish for dinner.

Cheesy Garlic Sticks

Who doesn’t love cheesy garlic sticks? They are perfect for dipping in marinara sauce or just eating plain as a snack! To make these delicious treats just roll out pieces of pre-made french bread dough into thin ropes about 4 inches long. Place them on a greased baking sheet and brush each piece with melted butter mixed with garlic powder and shredded cheese (as mentioned above). Bake until golden brown before serving warm with spicy ranch dressing or marinara sauce for dipping!
