    sugarpea's Note:

    Make a six month supply of bread crumbs for the cost of 2 loaves of bread and a cup of butter. And they taste better than the store-bought version. I've used this recipe for 15 years and have no idea where it came from. The yield of course, will depend on the size of the loaves you use.

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 loaves firm-textured white bread
    • 1 cup butter
    • salt & freshly ground black pepper


    1. 1
      Use a food processor or blender to crumb the bread evenly.
    2. 2
      Crumbs should not be like sand.
    3. 3
      Leave some texture-don't overprocess.
    4. 4
      Melt butter in a large pan and add crumbs and salt and pepper.
    5. 5
      Stir until evenly coated.
    6. 6
      Continue stirring over medium heat until the crumbs sound like sand when they hit the bottom of the pan.
    7. 7
      Cool thoroughly.
    8. 8
      Then store in heavy duty plastic bags with zipper seals.
    9. 9
      Don't put them in the refrigerator-they won't keep.
    10. 10
      Store them in a cabinet for up to six months.

      Thank you so much for your recipe! I was planning on making chicken parm tonight and my store bought crumbs just expired! This was so easy and delicious to make. I had to write a review before I started dinner. :) I tried making it crunchier by toasting my refrigerated bread till it was hard, then blended it. Threw 1/3 cup of butter, salt, pepper, dried rosemary, oregano and basil. It smells so delicious!

      Thank you!! I had a loaf of gluten free bread go bad in my bread machine and used this recipe to make that brick of bread into the best gluten free bread crumbs I've ever made! Fast, easy and yummy. You saved the day!

      Great recipe and super easy. I used a half of a loaf of bread that was too stale to use for sandwiches and was glad to not have to throw it out, and also to not have to buy bread crumbs to make crab cakes.
