Did you know that you can toast bread straight from the freezer and still have the same delicious taste? Well it’s true! Every day in the UK, over 20 million slices of bread are thrown away – mostly because they are not used in time.
That means that the average person in the UK throws out more than half of a loaf of bread every month! You can keep bread for longer by putting it in the freezer and then use it straight from frozen to make toast.
Make Toast Not Waste encourages consumers to freeze bread and simply make toast straight from frozen, enjoying it in many different ways at all times of day. Use the following for inspiration:
