Homemade bread crumbs

So are you wondering what to do with the bread heals when you finish a loaf? I like to save all of mine in a baggie in the freezer and once I have a good amount, I make homemade bread crumbs.

Any type of bread can be used. There's nothing wrong with combining various breads; why let them go to waste? The mixture of various breads also gives your dishes some wonderful taste experiences!

If your bread is not dry enough to crumble in the food processor, place bread piece/slices on an ungreased baking sheet. Bread pieces will dry faster and evenly when they are laid out in a single layer, rather than when the pieces are stacked; allow a bit of room between pieces to dry properly. Bake in a 300 degree F. oven for approximately 10 to 15 minutes; about halfway through, turn them over so they dry evenly. Remove from oven and let cool.
Tear dried bread into smaller pieces and place in your food processor. I liked to use other ingredients to embellish the bread crumbs (herbs, Parmesan cheese, etc, but it is totally up to you). Whirl until desired coarseness.
