Make Your Own Bread Crumbs
I make my own bread crumbs. It’s very easy. I like adding stuff to it or mixing in stuff besides bread. Plus, I just make how much I need, as I need it.
Most of the time, I take 1-2 pieces of bread, toss them in the “food processor” (the Magic Bullet) and voilà!
If I’m lightly frying something (like fish sticks, chicken strips, or anything “crispy”), I do it a little differently.
It’s just a slight difference. I stick the pieces of bread in the toaster or oven until they are firm, THEN I put them in the food processor!
I have found that 1 piece of sliced bread yields about 1/2 cup of breadcrumbs.
If you don’t have bread, you can use plain cereal (Cheerios, corn flakes), flour, cornmeal, or tortilla chips. I’ve used all sorts of things!
