    full loaf in the oven on a low heat covered with foil with several holes in it. Separate the pieces as best you can prior to putting in the oven. Takes about an hour to completely dry at gas mark 4.
    Blitz it then into zip lock bags and freeze.
    Below is a link to my website.

    i had some sausages made by the chef at the cirencester gun shop open day. the guy said he used ready brek instead of rusk. they tasted good and the texture was spot on.

    That's what I've used in my last few batches of burgers and they turned out very well - even reached for the Scott's Porridge Oats box when I ran out recently.
