Make Your Own Flavored Bread Crumbs
The many uses of breadcrumbs
People in our country use gallons of bread crumbs each year. We use them to coat meat, as a filler, to flavor and to hold together some of our concoctions. Because of the abundant use of breadcrumbs its nice to know they are so easy to make at home. Making them at home not only allows us to flavor them to our own taste, it also allows us to use up those odds and end pieces of leftover bread so that we are not having to throw it out. As you find yourself with bread ends and pieces simply store them in a ziploc bay in your freezer until you use them to make your own homemade breadcrumbs
Make your own breadcrumbs
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Place stale bread ends and pieces on a cookie sheet and toast in oven for 10 to 15 minutes to dry out.
Crumble and place dried bread into cup of food chopper with a dash of salt and pepper. Chop until fine crumbs form. If you are using a food processor use the knife blade.
Store in a tightly sealed contained at room temperature or store in freezer for up to three months.
