Brilliant!!! As a ceoliac, I always felt I was missing out on the wonderful crunch of Panko breadcrumbs, I always thought it was the flour used not the method that made them unique,,,now I know better,,,I have just made some using gluten free bread, and BRILLIANT.

Wonderful recipe! I used leftover sourdough bread and sprinkled some Italian herb with parmesean cheese seasoning into the crumbs before I baked them. I used the panko crumbs to coat my chicken tenders and the chicken was wonderfully crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. It was a big hit at our party! This recipe works out so well! Thank you for sharing.

Thank you for posting this recipe. I knew it had to be easier than going to the store and buying panko. I used it for fish and chips. Thank you again,

I just bought my first food processor and just had to try this. I used leftover hotdog and hamburger buns and it worked perfectly! I'm excited to use this on a fried shrimp recipe! The flavors on these are endless.

Hello Jim; Made your Homemade Panko Crumbs 3 days ago. I used a loaf of Italian Bread and I can't believe how well they turned out in the food processor. I very lightly sprinkled the crumbs with some Seasoning Salt before lightly toasting in the oven. The crumbs turned out great, look as good or better than the store bought Panko Crumbs. Thanks Jim, I do not have to worry about running out of Panko Crumbs, will have them readily available. "Uncle Bill"

I used a cheap brand of white bread and mostly the heels. I make fresh bread crumbs a lot, but never have used the grater disk. This made the fluffiest crumbs that baked up great. I wasn't paying much attention so they did get lightly browned, but no uneven spots. I topped my Three Cheese Baked Mashed Potatoes Three Cheese Baked Mashed Potatoes with these and they added such a wonderful light crunchy topping. They really do have a better texture than regular crumbs. I've used panko crumbs before (several years ago) and think these will make an equally good breading for chicken, etc. Roxygirl

This worked out great! I was a skeptic but I was impressed. I dont think they are exactly the same as panko but they are much cheaper and they are close enough for me. Love it!

I used 57 saltine crackers, which I ground in the food processor, to make approximately 2.5 cups panko crumbs for my chicken recipe. I cooked them for 8 minutes in the oven, sifting twice as suggested. They came out nice and crispy, making a good coating for the chicken. Thanks a lot for this recipe, it certainly helped me out of a bind.
