HOME MADE BREAD CRUMBS


INGREDIENTS:

Left over bread OR Crust ends of loaves - 2 cups

NOTE : DO NOT USE STALE BREAD OR IF YOU SEE MOLD ON BREAD SLICES.

METHOD:

While making sandwiches , I often end up with a lot of crust end of loaves. Generally, children do not eat these rough ends. I use these for home made bread crumbs. Collect all the crust end of bread loaves. Put it in a plastic bag and tie tightly. Place this bag in the freezer compartment and it will become dry. When hard and dry, pulse in a mixie to crumbs or till you get the desired coarseness. Freeze them and use when needed. These crumbs can be used for crispy coatings in tikkis, cutlets and many delicious recipes which need bread crumbs.
Another way is toasting the crust ends in an oven till golden brown and pulsing in a mixie to crumbs.

  11. Good to use the tops of loaves and left over bread this way. Economical also compared to buying a big bag full of crumbs when I will be using just about few spoons!
