This is an easy blend that I came up with after looking at a few different recipes. It just happened to please my family; I'm posting it here so I won't lose it, lol. They tend to like foods fairly bland and boring. I didn't measure to see how many cups of bread crumbs I got, as I kept crumbling slices of toast until it looked right. And the beef broth was my own homemade, still gelled from being in the fridge; I don't know if canned would be different.
