I had a lot of left over buns from my birthday barbecue, so each day I tried to use up the bread. Who knew hamburger buns made for delicious garlic bread and croutons? (Just brush them with butter, salt, and herbs and bake it for 20 minutes!) My favorite recipe though was the bread pudding one. So good I ate it all before even taking a picture of it!

¼ cup butter, melted
3 eggs, slightly beaten
