You will not only learn how to make bread crumbs at home, feel free to check out more homemade recipes at the bottom of the page.
I give you three ways to make them; knife, food processor, or blender. The blender and food processor make uniform-sized crumbs. Fresh bread crumbs are made with the crusts removed.
4 slices of bread = 1 cup of bread crumbs
If the bread is really soft, let it sit on the counter to dry out a bit, and then cut into crumbs with a knife. Otherwise place in a blender or food processor to make crumbs.
Onion rolls are wonderful and one large roll will make approximately 2 cups of crumbs. A blender or food processor will give you fresh bread crumbs in 30 seconds.
When the blender is running, add small chunks of bread through the hole in the cover of the blender.
If you like you can place the bread crumbs in a hot dry pan to toast them.
Add a little: oregano, basil, sage, rosemary, thyme, savory and marjoram.
You can also add the following spices to one cup of bread crumbs:
1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
2 teaspoon of garlic, minced
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
2 tablespoons of fresh basil, chopped
This is wonderful over fish. Experiment and make your own bread crumbs - it makes a good meal; GREAT.
