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!
