Homemade Breadcrumbs

1 Loaf of Day old bread or remnants. I used a leftover half loaf that I put in the freezer and just brought out for this.  No waste here!
2 tablespoons dried oregano or thyme
2 tablespoons dried basil or parsley
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 teaspoons salt, or to taste
1/2 teaspoon pepper, or to taste


Preheat your oven to 300 degrees F.

Cut the bread into cubes, and process the cubes in a food processor to make coarse crumbs.

Spread the crumbs on a baking sheet – use two baking sheets if necessary – and dry the coarse crumbs in the oven for about 10 to 15 minutes, stirring halfway through the baking time.

Let the crumbs cool completely and return them to the food processor, add the seasonings, and pulse until the crumbs are well-mixed with the seasoning.

Make sure seasoned bread crumbs are dry and cool before storing in an airtight container.  You can also store them in the fridge.They will last for up to 6 months!

Now you can bread anything you wish; vegetables, poultry, or fish. 

With the prices of food going up, as is everything else, this is a great way to save a little dough...get it? Oh well. It's too early in the morning.
