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.

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.

Well ... Maybe you can’t see it, but it’s 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.
