This is something that I was very happy to stop spending money on. I make most of our bread and often have pieces that do not get eaten before it goes stale. Making your own breadcrumbs is a delicious and cost-effective use for your stale bread!
Here is what you need:
Stale bread, any kind of bread will work. Today, I had half of a loaf of Italian bread that my mom bought while she was in town. Most often, I freeze odds and ends pieces until I have a large glass Pyrex full.
1 tablespoon dried oregano, 2 tablespoon dried parsley, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese, 1 teaspoon sea salt, and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
Here is what you do:
If your bread is not already crunchy, this is hard for my bread to achieve in our humid Florida climate, place it on a cookie sheet and bake at 250 degrees F for 10-15 minutes.
Allow bread to cool. Place in blender or food processor until desired size for your crumbs is achieved. Place crumbs in a large bowl. Add seasonings and cheese and stir until well blended.
Store in an airtight container in your freezer.
