"This recipe is from Bellaonline.com. I don't use them, much, but a lot of people do. Here is your chance to contron the ingredients in yours. Any white bread will do for making panko. An Asian chef I once worked with swore that the best homemade panko came from Wonder Bread! The yield will vary according to how large you make your crumbs, so I am guessing."

"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 Recipe #89840 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!"
"Wow!! What a find! No need to buy panko crumbs again. Thank so much for sharing the recipe!"
"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."
"This makes perfect panko, and is perfectly easy! Thanks for posting."
"Thanks you! I make my own bread and wanted to have Panko Crumbs to make chicken nuggets."
"Great panko recipe! I'm never buying panko again. Thanks for posting a true keeper."
"This worked out well. I hate wasting money on storebrought breadcrumbs so this recipe was great."
"Wow, so easy! I'm going to try using a batch of homemade white bread next time, too. Thanks!"
"Super easy and work great. I will be using this in place of bread crumbs in any recipe!"
"I needed some panko crumbs to make up some fried shrimp, and this recipe worked great. I will use this from now on, and will never be without again! Thanks for sharing!"
"I was out of bread crumbs and bread. I came across this recipe and was so happy I did. I used Saltine crackers. Thanks Jim !!!!!!"
"Jim in Washington, thanks for posting this recipe, which has saved me $$$ and gas. I use panko often. A great method. I couldn't believe how it turned out! I used a long loaf of cheap bread and filled a gallon ziplock bag. Thanks from Janet!"
"wow am I ever happy I finally made this, there will be no more store bought panko for me, these are just as good if not even better, I know I will be making these over and over, many thanks to you Jim for sharing this great recipe!"
"I was going to buy panko but was shocked by the price. I'm very glad I found this recipe. I made a big batch from leftover bread (homemade & storebrand) I keep it in the freezer. Once you try these you will never go back to regular bread crumbs. They will improve any recipe that calls for breadcrumbs."
