Confession: I hate wasting food, and though I do occasionally throw it away, I have also been known to put it to extremely—er, unorthodox use.
I just discovered a neat use for leftover hotdog buns. And it’s not even weird.
Slice the buns in half and arrange open-faced on a baking sheet. Brush with melted butter and sprinkle generously with garlic salt.
Place under broiler and toast for 3 minutes or until crispy golden brown.
Voilà! You have your own crusty breadsticks, already cut—the perfect accompaniment to soup or salad. Yum!
