If plain slices of your sourdough loaf are getting old, I’ll show you new ways to eat it so you never get bored! Here are some of my favourite ways to make different kinds of sourdough bread.

There is almost never a day at the farmhouse when there isn’t a sourdough loaf prepared to be cut.
My big family of nine can’t always eat all the bread we have because I try so many recipes.
I’ve had to think of new ways to eat bread over the years to make sure nothing goes to waste and we don’t get bored with it.
I now know that there are a lot of different ways to serve and change up sourdough bread.
Those of you who want to try sourdough will be ready to do so as soon as you see how many different ways there are to enjoy it every day!
What is Sourdough Bread?
To make sourdough bread, you need flour, water, and salt. There is no yeast that you can buy. The only thing that makes the bread rise is the wild yeast that forms spontaneously when flour and water are mixed. “Naturally leavened bread” is another name for sourdough bread…
To make sourdough bread rise, you need a sourdough starter. A starter is full of natural yeast and good lactic acid bacteria that help the dough develop. The natural yeast gives the bread its traditional sour taste.
The fermentation process of sourdough makes good bugs and breaks down the gluten. Sourdough is the best bread you can eat because it has so many good bugs in it.
What to Serve with Sourdough Bread
To answer your question, yes, you can have both avocado toast and bread with butter and jam for breakfast.
But that’s not all the good things about bread for the most important meal of the day. Here are some more tasty recipes.
1. Sourdough Breakfast Strata
Breakfast casseroles are great for everyone. Sourdough breakfast strata is my favourite. It’s quick and easy to make, and it’s filling enough to feed a big family. It will also taste great to you!
The best bread for this: A sourdough loaf with a crunchy top
2. Breakfast Sandwich
With sourdough, you can make a tasty and filling breakfast sandwich.
What kind of bread do you want to use? You could choose my soft einkorn sandwich bread, a crusty no-knead cake, or sourdough English buns. Pick the one you like most.
3. French Toast
How to Take Care of a Sourdough Starter
You don’t add sourdough trash to the dough; you just discard it. You “feed” your starter by putting flour, water, and starter into a glass jar in equal amounts. Then you let it rise at room temperature for a few hours.
You can’t feed the whole seed at once because it grows twice or three times. There should be a lot of starts on hand. If you have never used sourdough before, read this post to find out how to keep your starter happy.
You can make tasty, crunchy bread with your sourdough starter. You can make many tasty baked goods with the scraps from your sourdough.
Sourdough Bread Leftovers: What to Do
Like I did, you might eat too much of that delicious white bread. If you put sourdough bread slices in a freezer bag, you can freeze them for up to three months. When you want to make great avocado toast, put a slice in the toaster.
You can also use a bit of bread to make homemade French toast. Anyway, make French toast with bread that is one or two days old. Pure maple syrup tastes great on top!
You can also make sourdough crackers with bread that didn’t rise as much as you’d like. Putting old bread to good use is a great way to reduce food waste.
