white bread, or
if you don't have white bread, use soda crackers, like Saltines and oyster crackers or
melba toast, instead. approx. 23 saltine crackers per cup
- Push chunks of white bread through the shredding disk of a food processor to make coarse crumbs.
- Spread the crumbs on a baking sheet and bake at 300 F degrees until the crumbs are dry but not toasted, about 6 to 8 minutes. Shake the sheet twice during baking. Be careful not to let the crumbs brown!
- Immediately remove bread crumbs from oven and allow them to cool.
- Once cooled, crumbs may be stored in the freezer, in a resealable plastic bag for as long as several months.
