Breadcrumbs are one several items that are so unnecessary to purchase at the grocery. It's so easy to make! Plus, by making my own breadcrumbs I take advantage of using up the last bits of homemade breads, and can avoid all the additives found in store products. The main idea in making breadcrumbs is to remove the moisture. Simply chop the bread into crumbs, toast and store! Super easy!
|Gather your bread pieces (leftover bread works great!). I'm using an end piece of a loaf of Challah as well as a roll made from the same dough in the picture above.|
|Break up bread into pieces and place in food processor. I don't have a food processor, but find that the chopper grinder attachment to my immersion blender works quite well.|
|Run food processor or immersion blender until bread pieces resemble fine crumbs.|
|Place crumbs into a skillet and toast to remove the moisture. Stir frequently so that everything gets toasted and not burnt.|
|Keep stirring, and toast until brown.|
|Allow to cool, and then scoop into the container. I use a glass jar, which looks nice as part of our bookshelf pantry.|
It's as simple as that! You now have one less item to buy at the grocery!
