National Freedom Toast Day

Today, if you’re like me, you’ve got a real abundance. The day after a cookout, the most prevalent remains tend to be buns.

And so, because a hefty portion of us will have done some Independence Day grilling, I hereby declare July 5 to be National French Freedom Toast Day. (Think of it as a cousin to National Leftovers Day, or as some people call it, the day after Thanksgiving.)

After all, what the heck else are you going to do with all those extra buns? Sure, you can have another cookout, or enjoy the buns with leftover proteins. But making French toast (even for dinner!) is another, lighter use for those baked goods.

To give full credit, I got the hamburger-bun-to-French-toast idea from The Bay Area’s Eco-Chef. And I had a pleasant experience doing the same with hot dog buns last year.

So I encourage you to give it a shot (or at least find another use for those buns). Do it for your budget, your pantry, or your country. Here’s to freedom and Freedom Toast!
