Recipe For Stuffed Bread


Okay, I have a new favorite way to use up leftovers. A blogger friend has said repeatedly how wonderful it is, but like bagels, I thought it might be too hard. All you have to do is make up a bread dough and put the leftovers inside. Braid it up really pretty and poof! You have a new meal. Really, all I can say is the more I try, the easier things are to make/bake.
