Refresh stale bread

Catt from Glasgow

File 558Refresh stale bread by wrapping in a teatowel and microwaving for a few seconds. For larger quantities, wrap in foil and warm in the oven.  

It'll stay soft for a short while after cooling. Also works for tortillas and flatbreads. If too far gone it won't soften, but it's worth a try before consigning it to breadcrumbs or croutons!
