How to Make Bread Crumbs

Why buy those expensive containers of breadcrumbs when you can make your own for a fraction of the cost?

Almost any kind of bread will work except sweet breads.  I save the heels of bread, the lone hot dog and hamburger bun left in the bag, bagels that have dried out, etc. and then a couple of times a week I put them through my food processor.

Then I bag them and freeze them for use whenever a recipe calls for bread crumbs.

If you like, add your favourite dried herbs or seasonings, give the bag a shake and then freeze.  Just make sure to label each bag so that you know which kind it contains.

For just pennies and a few minutes of your time, you can have bread crumbs ready in the freezer whenever you need them.
