Recipe for Pulled Bread:

History:
Pulled bread, also known as torn bread, is a traditional dish that has been enjoyed for centuries. The origin of this recipe is not well-documented, but it has been passed down through generations in many cultures. In the past, people would use leftover bread to make pulled bread, ensuring that no part of the loaf went to waste. Today, it is still a popular choice for those who appreciate its unique texture and flavor.

Fun Facts:
- The act of pulling or tearing the bread into small finger-lengths gives this dish its name.
- Pulled bread is often enjoyed as a snack or as a side dish to accompany soups and stews.
- This recipe is known for its simplicity and ability to transform stale bread into a delicious treat.

Ingredients:
- 1 Vienna loaf of bread: 12-hours old
- Clean-cut knife
- Olive oil or cooking spray (optional)

Instructions:
1. Preheat the oven to a moderate temperature (around 350°F or 180°C).
2. Place the Vienna loaf of bread on a clean cutting board. Using a clean-cut knife, carefully remove all the crust from the bread. Ensure that the slices are cut evenly and neatly.
3. Once the crust is removed, gently break away small finger-lengths of the bread with your fingers. Be careful not to smash or crumble the bread.
4. If desired, lightly coat a baking sheet with olive oil or cooking spray to prevent the pulled bread from sticking.
5. Arrange the finger-length pieces of bread on the baking sheet, ensuring that they are spread out evenly.
6. Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake the pulled bread for about 10-15 minutes or until it turns a golden brown color.
7. Keep an eye on the bread to prevent it from becoming too crispy or burnt. The goal is to achieve a perfectly toasted and crunchy texture while maintaining the softness inside.
8. Once the pulled bread has reached the desired color and texture, remove it from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes.
9. Serve the pulled bread as a tasty snack or alongside your favorite soups, stews, or dips.

Note: The recipe suggests that six loaves of bread are required for one pound of pulled bread. Adjust the quantities accordingly based on the amount you wish to make.
