Remarks
This recipe is a great way to use up bread that would otherwise go to waste. There is no need to use a fresh loaf; on the contrary, drier bread is easier to cut.

The proportions for the filling are for guidance, so you may need to adapt them to suit the size of your loaf.
Keeping
1 or 2 days in the fridge, covered with plastic film.
