Day-old bread, cut in chunks
Feta cheese, crumbled
Green onion, chopped
Beef broth or stock, hot
Place the bread slices in a bowl. Sprinkle the green onion, parsley and feta cheese on top. Pour some hot beef broth and wait until the bread soaks it in, then pour the rest. The bread shouldn't be dry or juicy. If needed, add some salt and pepper.
Tirit is a Turkish dish made from old bread so it doesn't have to be thrown away. Other options you have for old bread is using it for Turkish Hamburger or http://english.turkishcookbook.com/2005/07/turkish-style-french-toast.htm or Bread with Eggs or making croutons for soup and salads.
To make croutons, cut the bread in cubes. Place on an oven tray and add some olive oil, salt and pepper on top, then toss. Preheat your oven to 175 C (350 F) and bake for about 10-15 minutes.
Bread is an essential element for the culture of the Turkish people and Turkish kitchen. We don't even throw away the stale (2-3 days old) bread. We have so many different ways to cook them:) We don't like to waste any food:) In my country, it's considered disrespectful if you don't finish all the food on your plate. We should always remember those people who are not able to put enough food on the table, let's not waste it:)
