How to make your own bread crumbs at home ?? | Homemade Bread Crumbs

Bread crumbs are mostly available in stores and then,why make these at home??True,but what do you do the top layer,bottom layers and the left over 3-4 slices from the bread pack after its used for breakfast & snacks??If you throw these slices in trash,then this is just meant for you.It hardly takes any time to turn these slices in bread crumbs and use it up in making cutlets,fish fingers,pop corn chicken,nuggets and so on.These are perfect bread crumbs just like the store ones,Do use up your left over slices and make these at home !!


Ingredients
bread slices 7-8
Other accessories
cookie sheet/baking tray
blender
strainer


Method
-Pre heat oven to 200 degrees F and place the bread slices arranged in one layer in the clean baking tray.
-Place it in the oven for 10-15 minutes,remove from oven.
-Turn all sides and place again for 10 minutes until its crisp and toasted.


-Break it in smaller pieces and blend it in a blender.
-Strain the powder and repeat if there are larger pieces in the strainer.

OR 
-Blend the slices in the blender by pulsing it once or twice.Then,spread the coarse powder in a tray and bake in oven @200 degrees F for 10-15 mins.

-Preserve it in clean dry bottles or air tight containers.

NOTES
* Don't refrigerate the bread crumbs.Keep in air tight container at room temperature.
* If you wish slightly coarse powder then pulse the blender 4-5 times without grinding.
* I packed it in my finished store brought tin sometime back.
* You can make using any of the above methods.The second method gives coarsely powdered bread crumbs.

I do this too. Even microwaving bread at 15 sec intervals for a minute will make bread stiff and is good enough to make crumbs
