extra credit: make your own breadcrumbs.
I’m sure it kept you up late into the night pondering just how in the world you might put it to use?
I’m so sure.
Make Your Own Breadcrumbs!
Now breadcrumbs aren’t too expensive…maybe $2 or less on average if you pick them up at the store. But if you have some leftover bread that you need to put to use, what the heck! Let’s give it a whirl.
Start by slicing up some leftover bread. Pop it in the food processor. Keep the crusts on if you want some extra color and crunch (or remove if you don’t).
To toast your breadcrumbs for extra flavor and crispiness:
Toast on a baking sheet at 250 for 25 minutes.
- Sage and melted butter for pastas, sweet potatoes or squash.
- Parsley, olive oil and lemon zest for salads and pastas.
- Cheese, garlic and herbs for chicken or fish,
All in all you’ll save about 50% by making your own…and I think you’ll be pleased with the results.
