Breadcrumbs

Breadcrumbs are great to do with stale bread! It’s a fun job to get our children to help with, and handy to keep on hand. I use it to make homemade chicken fingers, ham croquettes, bread fish, to put in my hamburger patties, meatballs, or on top of casseroles! You can season it (italian seasoning and salt), or season it as you need it depending on what you’re making.

First off, slice (or tear apart) your bread and dry it out. You can dry it by leaving it on the counter, or placing it in the oven at 200F until dry. Then put it through a food processor until crumbled. That’s what Korban is doing on the first picture above. He loves that job! He eats a fair amount of dry bread in the process too. 😉

And voila! Season if desired. Store in an airtight container, or ziploc bag. Now you’re ready to make some delicious meals with it, and you’ve been thrifty by reusing your stale bread. 🙂
