Homemade Breadcrumbs

I don't know about you, but I love to make chicken parmigiana and eggplant parmigiana at home! I used to buy the breadcrumbs in the tube from the grocery store shelf.

One day I got to thinking...we waste the heels of the bread b/c I am the only one that does not mind eating it. So, I got on the internet...google'd homemade bread crumbs. After browsing, I figured out...I just save my bread ends, toast them in the toaster oven to dry them out and throw them in the food processor. I store them in a sealed container in the freezer. Then, when I need them, I just throw in some spices and Parmesan cheese and get to cooking!

Another benefit...we eat whole wheat bread so the crumbs are whole wheat also...so it's good for you! And, since almost everyone consumes bread, you are not spending more out of pocket for the crumbs and getting the most from your loaf! So think twice about tossing out those heels! Enjoy!

Thanks Crissy for your kind comment. I know I have readers but nobody ever comments so it's nice to get one once in a while. I hope you had a great Thanksgiving!


Oh and we make our own bread crumbs too. The more frugal we become the more we learn to make from scratch. Plus it just tastes better when you make it all yourself. :)
