A good way to use old bread or dinner rolls. Season add these to salads, pasta, or use them to bread chicken, eggplant, fish, etc. Store them in a mason jar and they will keep for a month or so.


-4 slices white or whole wheat sandwich bread or 3-4 dinner rolls (any day old bread you have in the house will work)

Tear bread slices into small pieces. Process in a food processor until coarse crumbs form.

To make toasted breadcrumbs, spread the fresh crumbs in an even layer on a large rimmed baking sheet. Bake in a 350° oven, stirring occasionally, until browned and dry, then transfer hot breadcrumbs to a large bowl.

 Stored in an airtight container, they’ll keep for 1 month.
Customize with: lemon zest, chopped fresh herbs, crushed red pepper flakes, dried herbs, grated Parmesan, powdered or minced garlic.
