Homemade breadcrumbs4

Posted on April 14, 2011 by ChristieCookware Tests

I would like to declare publicly here and now that I will NEVER, ever buy packaged breadcrumbs again.

I am seriously aghast that I haven’t tried to make my own breadcrumbs before but now that I have done it using my beloved Braun Multiquick Cordless I will be making them every time we buy a loaf of bread. As in, all the time.

These delicious little morsels were blitzed into existence in about 30 seconds using the end pieces of two different loaves of bread – Burgen Soy and Linseed and Helga’s Harvest Grains and Seeds – which are my favourite packaged breads. As a result, the breadcrumbs were flecked with delicious whole grains and seeds like sesame, poppy and pumpkin and so much the better for it!

Sorry Krummies, you’ll probably never get my business again.

The four end pieces resulted in about two cups of crumbs. I used some in a mushroom strudel and the rest on potato croquettes, recipes coming in the next few days. Stay tuned!

Happy cooking, Christie x

  • It’s even better when you use the old dried up end bits of some sourdough…best crumbs ever

  • And you can also spread them out on a baking tray and dry in a very low oven till they are crisp, and they will store for ages in a jar – great way to avoid wasting the last of a loaf of bread when you have just baked a new one and you know no-one is going to use up that end bit! Zucchini slices dipped in egg and home-made breadcrumbs and fried – yum.

  • Great gadget!

  • I so haven’t made breadcrumbs either, but keep meaning to. Especially as they are so much better than the packaged variety.
