how to give a day old baguette new life (or any any fresh bread)

once bread sits out for a day or two, it can become dried out. even though it may be dried out, it is still edible. fortunately, you can soften your bread by using proper warming techniques

You will need:

brown paper sack

paper towel

baking sheet

remove the dry bread from any bag or other storage container. place the bread into a brown paper sack that is large enough to cover the entire loaf with room to spare.

pre-heat your oven to 300 degrees. dampen a paper towel with warm water and wring it out to remove any excess water.

fold or crumple the open portion of the brown paper sack  so it is completely closed. wrap the dampened paper towel across the entire top surface of the paper sack—this will help make the bread more moist as it bakes.

place the paper sack onto a baking sheet. bake the paper sack with the bread for approximately three to seven minutes or until the bread is softened.

discard the brown paper sack. consume the softened bread immediately or it will begin to dry out again.
