How Can I Use Up a Whole Loaf of 12-Grain Bread?

Good Questions

Q: I was trying to be healthy and bought a 12-grain loaf of bread. Unfortunately I really don't like the taste of it but I don't want to throw the whole thing away!

Is there a good way to dress up/use the bread?

Editor: Julia, sure! Turn it into breadcrumbs and use them to top a casserole or gratin. If you toast the bread and turn it into breadcrumbs, the things you don't like about the bread will be muted, and you'll have made a good ingredient for nothing.
