A lot of my recipes I talk about my homemade bread crumbs. I am not even sure where I learned this or if it was something I taught myself, but I use them often so I always have a stash in my cupboard. It requires, bread and a magic bullet, or small blender of your choice.
I have been making bread crumbs for about 7 years now and only 1 time in that 7 years, I bought some at the store and I couldn’t believe how terrible they tasted. I will never take the easy route again after that.
Below I will show you how I make these simple homemade bread crumbs. The best part is they store really well in an air tight container, so you can make more than needed at a time.
What Do I Need?
- Magic Bullet / Small Blender
- Air Tight Container
How Do I Make These?
Toast your bed until just golden brown, I think its between the 1 and 2 setting on my toaster. You don’t want it burnt but you also don’t want to under toast it, or it will turn into a mushy mess, done that before.
When your bread is toasted, tear it or cut it into small pieces and place inside your blender. I use a magic bullet and I put the lid on tight and I blend it for about 30 seconds. I shake mine around, so all the bread is turned into crumbs. But that would depend on your style blender, on if you have to shake it around.
Now that it is all crumby, you can use what you need to and store the rest in an air tight container until you need them again. I use mine sometimes once a week and sometimes once a month. Typically 3-4 pieces of bread, makes enough for me to make what I need at least a couple of times. They never taste stale when I store them in a container, where I thought the store bought ones tasted stale and they were brand new from the store.
I hope that you give this a try and that this helps you with some of my recipes. A lot of my vegetables I cook, have bread crumbs on them. You can also substitute pork rinds for bread crumbs, if you are trying to do a diabetic/low carb diet. You wouldn’t need to toast them, but you could blend them up if you wanted to.
Here are a couple of recipes that I make, that require bread crumbs below (click the buttons):
If you do try these, let me know what you think of them on your next recipe. I would love some feedback on the recipes you tried.
