If you have a few bags of stale bread with just a slice or two and the end pieces left - don't throw it out, make bread crumbs instead!
First cut the bread into 2 " chunks and place them in a single layer on a baking sheet.
Preheat the oven to 350˚ F.
Bake for about 15 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes so they toast evenly.
Remove the bread from the oven and let cool completely. Process the bread in a food processor until finely chopped.
At this point you can leave them plain or add seasoning to make them "Italian style".
For every 1 cup of bread crumbs add
1/8 TSP Koser salt
1 TSP Italian seasoning
1/4 TSP garlic powder
Store in Ziploc Bags in your freezer.
Now what do make with the crumbs? Add a crispy layer to chicken, pork or fish! Top some baked mac & cheese or add it to meatloaf or meatballs.
