“All you do is run the bread roll under a tap so it’s wet and then pop it in the oven for a few minutes. Honestly, it’s like you just bought it from the bakery – so fresh, so yum,” Judy wrote on Facebook, as quoted by Daily Mail.

She mentioned, “I’ve been conscious of reducing my waste and the job of using up stale bread rolls has always been a problem. There’s only so many breadcrumbs I can keep in the freezer and my kids aren’t a fan of defrosted rolls.”
