This is more a concept than an actual recipe... You can make this with any plain bread or with a stale Brioche. This used to be a common breakfast around here (Westmunsterland, Germany). Cook time is a guess, you have to watch for desired crispness...

Ingredients For knabbeln (how to use stale bread with coffee)

  • 1/2 lb
    bread, stale
  • 1 Tbsp
    butter, melted
  • 2 tsp
    brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp

How To Make knabbeln (how to use stale bread with coffee)

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350°F, then break the stale bread into pieces suitable for dipping in coffee.
  • 2
    Place the bread chunks onto a baking tray lined with nonstick baking parchment.
  • 3
    Optionally mix melted butter with sugar and cinnamon, and brush the bread chunks with the mixture.
  • 4
    Toast bread chunks in the oven until light brown and crisp (depending on your liking - as you will soften them by dipping, every stage of crispness before burning is okay).
  • 5
    Let toasted bread chunks cool and either store them in a cookie container or use them immediately for dipping in hot coffee.
