How do you make dried bread crumbs

Whats the secret? I've got a recipe that calls for "rolling in dryed bread crumbs and baking" I've tried this before and got a weird soggy mess. So whats the secret? I don't want to buy bread crumbs.

  • tear up bread and put it in the oven until it's dried out...usually 300 deg. for 20 minutes

  • Oh, if you want it quicker, I've used the toaster on light setting in a pinch

  • buy them at the store?

  • I usually just buy them at the store because they come with seasoning already. But I would assume putting the bread in the oven, or toaster would work and then just crunch it up.

  • No one likes the bread ends at my house, so I save them in the freezer until we need bread crumbs. You definitely want to dry the bread out first, either by toasting on a low setting or in a warm oven. You'll know it's ready when it practically crumbles into bread crumbs rather than tearing when you break it up.

  • I take the heels of my bread loaves and leave them in the oven with the pilot light only until they're dried out (usually overnight). Then I run the bread through my food processor on shred until it's really fine.
