How to Make Bread Crumbs

A lot of people dont know how to do a lot of things. That’s okay. Even if you know how to do just a few things, youll still be ahead of the game. If you haven’t already noticed, the Index features a large number of How to’s.” One of those How to’s is making fine, dry bread crumbs in four easy steps.

How to Make Bread Crumbs:

1/ Preheat oven to 350 deg. F. Place leftover bread on large, parchment-covered baking sheet.  Toast 10-to-12 min., or until golden. Turn over and repeat. I use stale white bread; multigrain  bread doesn’t produce crumbs as fine as I like, but that’s a matter of personal taste. If you freeze leftover bread (as I do), thaw it before placing it on your baking sheet.

2/ Break toasted bread into 3 or 4 pieces per slice. Transfer to wide-mouthed blender or food processor with steel blade in place. Work with no more than 8 slices at a time, being careful not to overload your machine. 

Consider ... If bread were a sentient being, it still  wouldn’t 
have a clue what awaits. Weird, but true.

3/ Whirl (the dried bread, Dollinks) faster than you ever did in one of those lame teacups at Disneyland. Buzz the dried slices intermittently - pulse/pause, pulse/pause - so you don’t wear out your machine.

As you can see, this live action shot is spinning the slices like crazy!
Well ... Maybe you can
t see it, but its happening.

4/ Done! Label, date, and store crumbs in airtight container at room temperature. Putting the words “dry bread crumbs”into the search engine at the top left of this page will bring up many great recipes in which you can use them.

Ready or not, here I crumb!
