DIY BreadcrumbsJuly 15, 2010 by thiswifecooks Leave a CommentPinShareTweetI decided to try making my own breadcrumbs today because…well, it just seemed silly to run to the store for themwhen I have plenty of bread available. At my daughter’s request, I am preparing spaghetti and meatballsfor dinner tonight. The meatball recipe is fabulousand can be found here.Back to the breadcrumbs… they’re super easy to make.Just add bread to a blender (1-2 pieces at a time)and chop until they reach a fine consistency.Then, spread over a baking sheet and bake at 200*, stirring every 15 min. or sountil the crumbs are completely dry.(Mine took about 40 min.)Remove from oven and cool.Store in an airtight container.Since we’re going Italian tonight, I took the recipe a step furtherby stirring in the following ingredients for seasoning into 1 c. breadcrumbs:1/2 tsp. salt1/2 tsp. dried parsley flakes1/2 tsp. black pepper1/2 tsp. garlic powder1/4 tsp. onion powder1/4 tsp. dried oregano1/4 tsp. dried basilSo much better than the store bought breadcrumbs!PinShareTweetmore from thiswifecooks!
