The Ultimate List of Leftover Sourdough Starter Recipes

If you have a sourdough starter, you understand the need (and desire!) to use it in creative ways.  When we first started making sourdough bread, we tried putting sourdough in all sorts of things without a recipe to use up the excess starter.  While it was frugal, it didn’t necessarily always taste good!  So I’ve put together the ultimate list of leftover sourdough starter recipes, which is full of amazing recipes to use up that starter!  It includes everything from sweet to savor, so try out some of your favorite treats with a sourdough twist!
