Bread crumbs (Home made)

Ingredients :

Bread slices or pieces(white, wheat, sourdough, rye, etc.)

Method :

Any type of bread (white, wheat, sourdough, rye, etc.) 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!

Please, don't use stale bread in this process. Stale bread makes for stale tasting breadcrumbs.

You need to use dry bread only. If you bread is too fresh, just bake fresh bread slices in a slow oven a oven until slightly dry.

I usually wait until I have enough bread slices to fill my food processor before making the crumbs.

Just store your odds and ends of bread in a large resealable plastic bag in the freezer until ready to make your homemade bread crumbs.

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. Whirl until desired coarseness.

NOTE: I like to grind mine until a coarse texture. This way, if I need finer crumbs, I just regrind the amount needed when making my dish.

If you don’t have a supply of homemade bread crumbs in your freezer, and you need a small amount for your recipe:

Use 1 or 2 slices of bread. Dry in oven. Place dry bread slices in a re-sealable plastic bag, and using your rolling pin or a large drinking glass, roll over the top of the plastic bag and crush bread until desired coarseness..
