How to use stale bread: Casserole omelette in the oven with mushrooms and peppers
Do you know what bothers me? The forgotten bread that gets stale and you have to discard it. Jeez, I hate trowing away food. It's such a pity right? So besides french toast (which is peeerfect!), I found another nice way to take advantage of 4th or 5th day's stale bread. And I don't mean to let it be fungus food, no. I meat using it for casserole omelet in the oven.
Ingredients (for 2 people):
:: 1/2 stale baguette (or any other kind of bread)
:: 3 eggs
:: 1 red pepper
:: 8-10 medium mushrooms
:: olive oil
:: 100 gr. feta cheese
:: salt & ground pepper
Break the bread into pieces and wet it a little bit if it is very hard to break it. Put the crumbs in a small
Chop the peppers and the mushrooms. Whisk 3 eggs and pour the mixture over the chopped vegetables and the bread crumbs, add the olive oil and the spices and mix. Bake at 180C for 20-30 minutes. When the omelette gets golden brown and fluffy, pull it out and pierce it with a toothpick. If it stays dry your dish is ready. Sprinkle some feta cheese on the top and let it in the oven for 10 more minutes and voila!
