Homemade Italian Breadcrumbs with Fresh Herbs


Why should I buy breadcrumbs?


I just save my bread ends in a bag in the freezer. It’s really easy to convert what some throw away into a yummy ingredient.


Simply process them in a food processor with fresh herbs such as parsley, oregano, basil, and thyme. Now they are ready for use in meatloaf or other dishes.

If your recipe calls for dry breadcrumbs, you can toast them in the oven at 300°F for a few minutes, stirring occasionally.


I recently used them in Chicken Parmesan. It was so yummy, especially with a sprinkle of fresh parsley.

What happens to bread ends at your home?
