Homemade Bread Crumb

I am always looking for frugal ways to make things from scratch. This week I tried my hand at homemade breadcrumb. I started with week old bread that I toasted in the oven. I left it in the oven a bit longer longer than I intended, but I don’t think that it’ll matter much in the end.
I broke the toast up into small pieces and shoved them into the blender. I pressed the button for grate….and nothing. I turned the blender on high and still…..nothing. So, I emptied the blender and began inserting one or two pieces at a time…..

and finally some action.

I wanted this batch to be Italian bread crumb, so I added some homemade Italian seasoning. It is just dried basil and parsley from my garden.I blended the toast a bit more to be sure that all of the big pieces were chopped well.

I poured the crumbs into a old bread crumb can.

I will store these in the fridge until I can determine the shelf life of homemade breadcrumb.I hope that you’ve enjoyed my visual breadcrumb making tutorial.

    Great tackle! I make homemade bread and one time I had a MAJOR flop, so I cut up the bread into cubes and threw it into a freezer bag. I have it in the freezer so I can make breadcrumbs, croutons, or bread pudding. I’m going to have to try your method of making breadcrumbs (I have yet to attempt).

    You are one smart woman! 😀

    How was the taste? Lacking (because of seasoning additives from processed) or more flavorful (the result of freshness)?

    I’ll be home soon, and I’ve got my eye on a few homemade kitchen projects myself. 🙂
