HOW TO.... Make your own (easy!) homemade bread crumbs.

If you're like us, it can be hard to use a whole loaf of bread before it starts getting stale.  That's why I love this easy recipe for making your own delicious bread crumbs.  It saves you money and prevents that unused bread from going to waste! 

Making Homemade Bread Crumbs with Leftover Bread
  1. Store any old or unused slices of bread in a large plastic bag in the freezer.
  2. Once the bag is 3/4 filled - full, take it out of the freezer and cut the bread into large chunks. 
  3. Pulse the bread chunks in a food processor until it is fine.  (If your food processor is as small as ours, you will have to do this in several batches!)  
  4. Toast the crumbs on a baking sheet (with a rim) for 4-6 minutes on 350 degrees.  Toss once while cooking.
Use for meatballs, a coating for meats, or as a casserole topper!  

(The crumbs will last for up to 6 months in the freezer if you don't use them right away.)
