Homemade Whole Wheat Italian Breadcrumbs

I came up for this breadcrumb recipe, when I saw that I had some bread nearing the end of its life in my pantry. I had set out to make Chicken Parmesan, and was originally planning on just grilling the chicken. However, when I eyed the bread leftover from a French Toast experiment, I decided to put my new Cuisinart food processor to the test. It did not disappoint! Making my own breadcrumbs was incredibly easy, and I will continue to make them myself instead of buying them at the store in the future. If you don’t own a food processor these can also be made in a blender, or just throw everything into a big zip-lock bag and roll over it with a rolling pin until you have your desired consistency!

I only ended up using half of the breadcrumbs in this recipe for my Chicken Parmesan. The leftovers can be stored in a zip-lock bag in the freezer until you’re ready to use them again!

Homemade Whole Wheat Italian Bread Crumbs 

4 Slices Whole Wheat Bread
1 tsp Dried Parsley
1 tsp Dried Basil
1 tsp Dried Thyme
1 tsp Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp Dried Minced Onion Flakes
Salt
Pepper

Place bread in toaster. Once bread is toasted tear into pieces and place into your food processor or blender (or zip-lock bag). Add dried herbs, spices, salt and pepper to taste. Pulse the mixer until you have your desired consistency. Freeze leftovers.
