Survey: Do You Eat the Heel of the Bread Loaf?

Shannon wrote to us with an interesting question. She says, "My friend and I are debating whether the heel of the bread is good to eat with sandwiches. I think it's fine; he says no way. I also think the heel of artisanal breads is one of the better parts, and he disagrees there too."

What about you? Do you eat the heel of the bread — alone or in sandwiches?

If you don't eat it, you can save it for breadcrumbs!
