How to: Breadcrumbs

Making breadcrumbs is pretty easy and there are various ways of doing so.

Essentially all you need is bread.


3 slices brown bread

Tools/ Equipment:

Rolling pin

Ziploc bag

Start by drying the bread, you go about this in these different ways;

    • Drying out the bread on a plate – this requires some time so you’ll need to be patient
    • Toasting the bread using a toaster or drying it in the sandwich maker
    • Microwaving the bread uncovered for 1 minute 30 seconds

I microwaved my bread.

You can either grind to a coarse or fine texture. I like mine coarse.

Voila! Breadcrumbs.

  1. I like fresh breadcrumbs for mince meat and toasted ones for deep frying. I usually just blitz mine in a food chopper. So easy and ready in seconds!!!
