  • Use a non stick skillet for best results ,so that when bread is added it won't get stuck
  • Do not  stir too much after adding bread pieces ,this may make the bread too mushy
  • Do not chop the edges away as they help the bread to be a bit crispy ,if not bread may split and become too smooth
  • If you wish to chop the edges turn off the heat after adding the bread pieces and just toss them instead of stirring them
