Homemade Bread Crumbs

They are so good!

There’s another advantage to homemade bread crumbs. You can use up leftover stale bread. If you have day old bread that’s just a bit dry, it’s perfect for making bread crumbs.

• White bread • Italian seasoning • Garlic powder


You can easily freeze them for longer storage. They won’t stick together and you can just take out what you need.

Why you’ll love it

Homemade bread crumbs are easy to make and so useful for breading, making meatballs or meatloaf, or for topping pasta. Try plain or Italian seasoned crumbs!

Tear bread into large cubes and place on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake for about 5 minutes or until dry but not browned. Let cool completely.


Once cooled, place dry bread in a food processor, with the S-blade, and pulse until the bread turns into coarse crumbs (should look like panko bread crumbs).


Bake for 15-20 minutes, stirring every five minutes, or until crumbs are completely dry. Cool completely before storing in an airtight container.


After the second bake, for each cup of bread crumbs, add 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning, plus ¼ teaspoon garlic powder. Increase seasoning as desired to taste.
