Spent Grain Beer Bread Breakfast Toast


It was great having an extra day this weekend which not only makes for a short week ahead but allowed for more time in the kitchen. It makes for an ever better weekend when good friends visit and bring fresh bread — which is the highlight of this post.


If you or any of your friends are home brewers, you'll know that spent grain bread is a must. The spent grain is in essence of no use after used in the brewing process so why not make a nutritious loaf which will have more protein and fiber than your typical bread? My friend Clay's wife, of 2 Noble Dogs Brewing does just that after brew day! 

Here is a simple recipe for spent grain bread.


I simply added some aged cheddar, fresh spinach from the E.A.T. garden, and a fresh egg to the toasted bread for a flavorful satisfying and filling early morning breakfast. A great way to take on the day — after all it is the most important meal of the day.

E.A.T. local E.A.T. well
