"If you are using this for breading such as Salisbury Steaks etc, use 1/2 the amount of crumbs and you will have a stronger spicier mix."

    Is the sugar necessary for taste?

    sooooo good. i added dried minced onions instead of onion powder and wow-- those storebought ones suffer in comparison.

    Just what I was looking for! I ran out of the "store bought" bread crumbs and made your recipe with some for another time. I like the fact that I can put Parmesan cheese in if I want it, or leave it plain. My husband says these are better that Progresso!! Carole

    Just made these and haven't even used them for anything yet, but they taste so good!!! I had been storing bread crusts in the freezer for awhile, and was hoping to find a good recipe to put them to use. I dried the crumbs in the oven and now have rebagged them for the freezer to use as needed. I ended up with 16 cups of breadcrumbs!

    Perfect for use in my Chicken Parmesan! I used Italian Seasoning & I crushed the dry bread in my food processor. Thanx Aroostook!


Zaar...Wow, what a place! I'm one of the old timers of Zaar. I can't count the number of wonderful dishes I cooked in the past few years since joining. Along the way I have had the pleasure of meeting several Zaar chefs. Talk about your fruits and nuts! lol. I have enjoyed meeting them all. Family: What's to say...I have had the same sweet husband forever (Good thing....I'd hate to have to break a new one in...=) and live close to a couple of grown children. (Maybe you've met Smoke Alarm Jr. ..her brown rolls are sooo good!) Therefore, my family gets together often to enjoy each other's company and cooking. My greatest joy is six "little to tallerthanme" kids running around calling me Grammy. They wear me out! lol For the past thirty years I have been a Special Education teacher for grades 9-12 and love it. Took some time off last year to recovery from surgery, chemotherapy and radiation for breast cancer. (Loved the radiation....I keep imagining that we are absolutely napalming the nasty cancer cells tohellandback to keep the little suckers from returning. =) My prognosis is good and now "I'm back in the saddle again". lol. Being a north country "gurl", I am happiest outside...walking, fishing, sitting in front of an outdoor fire or being on water (although in February it's a bit stiff....=0) When indoors I like to read, garden, knit, quilt and paint. During cold Maine weather I like to warm my feet on a very large ( 100 pounds of long legs and huge feet), sweet and furry golden retriever named Kerry (aka KTBRD: Kerry the big red dawg..lol) . In the summer, the dawg and I round up the grandkids, hit the local dairy bar for a Mounds Sundae that is to die for!!!=0) . Then spend a lot of long and lazy summer days at camp . All in all...Boy, Life is good! =)
