#1: Turn Leftover Chips or Crackers Into Breadcrumbs
Process the chips or crackers in a food processor until finely ground. Transfer them to a resealable plastic bag and freeze until ready to use. Swap them in anytime a recipe calls for breadcrumbs, adding a flavorful twist to foods like breaded fish sticks or chicken fingers.

Season the beer with sugar and salt to taste, then use to braise cuts of meat such as brisket or pork butt.
