This is our all-purpose recipe for breadcrumbs. We have used these to coat chicken and pork chops. We also use them in any savory recipe that calls for breadcrumbs. My fiance and I work this recipe together. I gather the spices and he operates the hand processor.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pulse the bread in a food processor until they are crumbs.
  2. Add in the spices and either mix by hand or give another pulse in the processor.
  3. Notes: We use a hand processor and stop when we get to coarse crumbs.
  4. We add the spices straight to the processor and get the crumbs down to a slightly less coarse grind. We still don't go down to a fine grind though.
  5. We have found that when coating chicken or pork chops that the coarser grind makes for a really neat crunch.

This worked out wonderful! I used to buy the Italian breadcrumbs but I like this one better. I like the cayenne added to it.
