Homemade Bread Crumbs

Any Bread Will Work

Old French BreadOld french bread, hamburger buns, hot dog buns, dinner rolls or any bread product can be lightly toasted in a warm oven.

Broken into smaller pieces before toasting will make it easier to fit in the blender later.

Or toasted bread can be used,

Don’t over stuff the blender.  The dry bread needs space to spin.  Just put in a few small chunks of dry bread.

One quick push down, and release, will create nice sized bread crumbs.  Holding it down for longer will make extra fine bread crumbs.

Ready to use

Store in air tight container.  Lasts for months.

Recipe Notes

This is a great way to use up old bread before it goes bad.  Get full use of it, you paid good money for it.

I used to be frustrated when the bread would dry out before we could eat all.  Now I just smile and add it to the bread crumb jar.

Now that I have a steady supply of bread crumbs, I bake more meat loaf & meat balls.   The family is very happy.

toasting in oven

Carefully toast in oven.

Many times after baking some thing in the oven, these is still enough heat left to dry out the bread.   I will place the bread in the oven for a few minutes.   Remember to set a timer, you don't want to forget it is in there and  turn the oven back on to pre-heat again.  * I have burned bread by forgetting it in the cooling oven.
