Homemade breadcrumbs are incredibly easy to make and add a tasty crispiness to breaded meats and toppings for main dishes.
Servings 4 cups
- 1 loaf stale bread *either homemade or store bought
Preheat oven to 250℉.
Cut bread into bite sized pieces. Note: If pulling from freezer, allow bread to completely defrost before cutting.
Place into a food processor and process with chopping blade until desired crumb size is achieved.
Transfer crumbs onto sided cookie sheet and bake until dried and crispy, stirring every 5 minutes.
*Please use as many organic ingredients as possible.
- To achieve 1 loaf of stale bread, place scraps of bread in a storage bag in the freezer until 1 loaf of bread is achieved. Defrost, cut and process following the directions above.
- Some breads will process into crumbs very quickly. Others, like homemade sourdough, may take a up to 10 minutes to fully process. Also, very fine breadcrumbs will take approximately an additional 5 mins more to achieve.
- Store bought breads may only take 10 mins to fully dry out and become crispy. Since homemade sourdough is a more moist bread, it can take up to 25 mins to fully dry out.
