The advantage of making your own breadcrumbs is that you can use up and bread that is no longer fresh. You can use whole wheat bread, or any other you have on hand. Homemade breadcrumbs also have better texture.
So, how do you make them? It’s very easy! Be sure to make extra and freeze some for other uses,
All you have to do is:
- Toast the desired bread. The goal is to dry it, not necessarily to brown it. It is recommended to toast on low heat for a longer period.
- Cool bread completely.
- Use a food processor or finely chop up the bread. Finely chopped is nice for stuffing. The food processor is better for breadcrumbs. The easiest method is to put the bead in a sealed bag and use a rolling pin to grind it.
