DIRECTIONS

  • Use a food processor or blender to crumb the bread evenly.
  • Crumbs should not be like sand.
  • Leave some texture-don't overprocess.
  • Melt butter in a large pan and add crumbs and salt and pepper.
  • Stir until evenly coated.
  • Continue stirring over medium heat until the crumbs sound like sand when they hit the bottom of the pan.
  • Cool thoroughly.
  • Then store in heavy duty plastic bags with zipper seals.
  • Don't put them in the refrigerator-they won't keep.
  • Store them in a cabinet for up to six months.
