I have heard something about using boiled (dead) bread yeast as yeast nutrient. Does anyone know anything about this? If so please share, how to do this and incorporate it into my yeast cider.

take amount of dried yeast you wish to use. Put in Pot with some water, and boil. I boil for 5 min, though im sure just one would be more than enough. Take yeast slurry and dump into container with your must. Pitch at proper temps

^^that.

Also, don't waste money on buying good brewing yeast just to kill it. Go to your local grocery store's baking aisle and get the big jar of bread yeast for much cheaper.. the yeast dont care

Wyeast nutrient isn't so expensive that I feel the need for a home substitute, especially since you need so little.
