The Heel An it makes a great Hot Dog bun.
Grandpa used to say if you eat the heel of the bread it would make your hair curly.
Anyone else ever heard that?
It keeps the rest of the 🍞 from drying out. When the two heels are left, they are best for making a peanut butter sandwich!
For those saying crust, this is the crust. It goes around the whole loaf and most kids have their mom’s cut it off their sandwiches. Lol The end part is called the heel. 😊
The part I throw away when the loaf is gone. I move it, take the next piece and put it back. I’m not quite sure why I don’t just throw it away when I first open the loaf. 🤷🏻♀️
Heel….and the gooodest part of the loaf😂😂🤣
Crust. I’ve always eaten it and that’s why I have curly hair😂
Crust covers the whole loaf!!! Good grief it’s the heel!!! Fools
The “heel”. It keeps the next slice of bread fresh. When I’m done with the loaf of bread, I put the heels in my back pocket to make my butt look bigger.
Since my grandpa and dad own/ran a small town bread bakery…but we did got into 4 states, it is called the heel…each end of the loaf has one and they are great with butter and jelly, toasted or French toast. YUM!
We called it the heel……..always toasted it added real butter as well as apple butter and it became a piece of cake to us…….
Your mom. Everybody’s touched it and nobody wants to eat it.
My grandparents used to fight over the heel, in an effort to convince us grandkids that it was actually good…….it didn’t work, but every time I move it out of the way to get the next piece of bread, I always think about them.
I am just curious as to how many people did a Google search to find out the actual name before replying to this post *raises hand*…it’s a heel! 😅
Save it. Break into little pieces, let dry out, grind and save. Use as breading on chicken, filler when home baking bread, sneak into oatmeal, stretch meatloaf, ..Use your imagination.
First slice was always the Crust . My brother and l had to take turns who had it. The other had to wait for the last slice .😅😅😅😅
That’s when you cut ,sliced your own loaf. Bread was proper in those days. Not full of crap.
The heel it’s there to keep the rest of the loaf fresh when you open it,and yes my dad would tell me if I ate it I would get curly hair,you know he was right.
I’ve eaten heel and I love the heel. But I don’t have curly hair! It’s straight as a board! What did I do wrong! Lol!
Me and my dad always fight over who would get the heel lol, sometimes I get the first one the dad get the last one, he been gone now for 14 yrs, when I eat them I always dad this for you, I would have miracle whip, sometimes, other times I put peanut butter that is how dad had his. Miss you daddy love you..
Yes, the heel….when I was a child, my mother made a big deal about wanting the heel, where Dave and I went for it and always got it, I still prefer the heel to this day, on reflection I don’t think my mother liked the heel!
In my house they all called it Dads slice (they wouldn’t eat it and I couldn’t waste it). But officially it is called a heel.
Worked in a couple bakeries, machines had parts to hold sliced bread in place while being bagged that were called heel plates.
The heelHa! When I get down to two heels left in the bread bag, I taken them out and crush them up for bread crumbs and freeze them. Great later for meatloaf, meatballs, etc.
Hahahahaha…love some of the answers … it is the crusty heel … and no there is no scientific proof that replacing it each time a piece of bread is taken, to cover the next piece, to retain its freshness … but hey, why not…however closing the bread box, retwisting the bread tie, or resealing the plastic wrapping…sure helps the loafs longevity. Happy eating!
The heel, spelled heel. And yes, it is the best part, especially on a loaf of crusty italian bread. I used to have to beat my son to it.
Crust. We were told the same thing about curly hair. I love bread but my
Hair is stick straight. Guess it don’t work for all of us.
My siblings and I would fight over who could have the heel of a new loaf of bread. It’s stilll my favorite slice of bread..!!!
In my house it’s called the end of the bread, and everyone wants it, they should find a way to make more ends on one loaf of bread, there,s one for all you engineer,s
I save the heel and make bread crumbs with them. Keep them in freezer until I have enough for a batch
The “HEAL” at least that’s what my Mother taught me. And MOTHERS ARE NEVER WRONG
Heel. Or as my daughter calls it the butt
We called it ‘the topper’ when I was a child, and I was always told to eat the bread crusts because they would make your hair curly, and yes I ended up with curly hair the bane of my life! Mind you eating my carrots as told, did not make me able to see in the dark!
I take the heels outside and pinch them into small pieces for the birds. My grandma taught me that when I was a little girl!
Take both ends and put your meat , mayo and whatever between the ends for a flat bun treat or toast both ends and put peanut butter on (no jelly) for a great treat
The heel. My favorite. I always get it when we open a fresh loaf. Then when we get close to the end of the loaf, I dig it out from underneath the other bread slices. Which is okay, since no one likes the heel besides me!
The heel,and it’s the best part.My family laughs because I always take it.That’a ok,I don’t have to fight for it! Lol
