The Food Waste Friday link up is back! Yay!
It’s Friday guys – Food Waste Friday.
(I’ve completed my Friday routine and a Fridge photo is over on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram)
In my hand I have blueberries.
Berries, in my experience, are one of those foods that may be fine to eat in the morning, yet can be inedible by the afternoon. I have to remember to freeze them if not using within a day or 2 of being purchased – because when even just one grows mould, it doesn’t take long to turn into an epidemic. I may be a fan of reducing food waste, but I’m also a massive advocate of food safety and hygiene.
It’s all above the food waste save for me. My Friday routine helps me minimise the food I waste, but of course there are items that may need using up. Meal planning without a doubt helps to keep the majority of food waste at bay, but there’s usually some food or ingredient threatening to go to waste. Time to get creative and think outside of the recipe.
Last week I was inspired to make an impromptu bread pudding, which was so simple and went down a storm.
Coincidentally it also coincided (see what I did there?) with Love Food Hate Waste running their Loafsaver campaign (not sponsored guys). I even made a video of my experimental recipe over on Facebook.
So this week when I found some berries and 3 brioche buns – bread pudding once again sprang to mind. The berries do need using up today, and I could make a smoothie for lunch, but as the brioche is starting to get a little dry – bread pudding seems the perfect solution to make a food waste save.

Butter a baking dish and pour golden syrup on the brioche buns:
Lay the split buns out:
Add the blended blueberries:
Pour over custard:
Bake for 15-20 minutes in a moderate to hot oven:
Serve warm with cream or leave to cool and cut into slices. Enjoy.
Don’t forget the Food Waste Friday link up is back!
…and it will be here every Friday, come rain or shine. I’m thinking there may not be a lot of link ups this week, or even for a few weeks to come, but going forward this will be the place to be so we can all talk about how we are reducing food waste, and share our recipes.
If you are out and about on social media please do hashtag #FoodWasteFriday. Every Friday I look out for those who are also participating and retweet, share etc…
As always, a grateful thank you to Kristen aka The Frugal Girl and original founder of Food Waste Friday.
Don’t forget to link up! Any food waste related post from any day of the week is fine with me…
