I don’t like wasting hard earned money on things I can make myself, especially on groceries.
I use breadcrumbs in many dishes, from meatloaf to chicken breading. Store bought is not only ridiculous in price it normally has additives.
I like using left over bread I’ve baked, but any stale (not molded) bread works fine.
I use my dehydrator to completely dry the bread after cutting it up into cubes. You can use an oven on the very lowest heat. You want to make sure there is absolutely no moisture left in any of the bread.
Next I toss the cubes into my ninja blender and pulse until the crumbs are the texture I prefer. You can also add in dried herbs or dehydrated onion, ramps and or garlic if you like for seasoning.
I keep one jar with an easy access Los for immediate use and other jars I will vac-seal to store in the pantry.
I hope you enjoyed this frugal tip for your kitchen.
Until next time,
