What is it about sourdough that makes it perfect to use for breakfast? Maybe because it's so easy to incorporate into things like sourdough pancakes and sourdough discard waffles? Or maybe because we feed our starters in the morning so it's always on our minds?
Whatever the reason, there is no doubt that we have endless ideas for incorporating our beloved sourdough starters into our breakfast routine. This powerful ingredient really does make the perfect base for all kinds of dishes!
Don't let the name fool you. Please do not actually discard your starter. It just means it is not active enough to make bread, but can still be added to so many different things. Learn more about what discard is and how to use it.

How to Bake with Discard
Most of the time, sourdough discard can be used right from the fridge or brought to room temperature. Each recipe should specify if one way or another is preferred.
If adding to recipes that need to rise it will often be paired with baking soda or powder. Some recipes will even require instant yeast to be used.

What about just a good piece of toast for breakfast? Even better if it is with fresh homemade sourdough bread.
