Did You Know – Bread Crumbs
Did you know that making your own bread crumbs is as simple as saving your leftover bread, even the heels?
Make your own bread crumbs for use as crunchy casserole toppings, in meatloaf or whatever you use breadcrumbs for.
Save your stale or leftover bread in a freezer bag and freeze. When you have enough, bake the slices in a 250-degree oven until dry and crumbly, then tear into sections and pulse in a food processor or blender. Baking time will depend on the thickness of the bread. Baking at this low temperature gently evaporates moisture while lightly browning and toasting the bread.
You can store dried breadcrumbs in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks in the cupboard or up to 4 months in the freezer.
