1/2 cup of sourdough

24 out of 40

My mom always made bread chips for the family. Commercial potato chips were a luxury item. When she visits from Brazil she still makes them for us, any old bread will do. Back then, she used mostly the leftovers from small French style white bread we often eat for breakfast that dries up by the next day. I try to keep the bread chips going until we see her again. Her recipes sustain us, specially when we have “saudade.”

Saudade is a Portuguese word that is hard to translate directly into English. It is not just to miss someone or something, but Saudade is a nostalgic or profound melancholic feeling of longing for something or someone we care for.

Sourdough Bread Chips

We use the bread we have – sourdough. Cut into triangles, drizzle with lots of olive oil (could use butter), salt, pepper, garlic and onion powder and lot and lots of oregano. Bake in a 300F or 350F until the bread is dried and crunchy. It is impossible to stop eating them.
