Homemade Bread Crumbs

Recently I found a stack of old cookbooks from my grandmothers. Since Red1 has a successful Tiktok account, my mom gave me the idea to expand Groovy Artichokes past this blog. We now have a Tiktok account linked to this blog called Groovy Artichokes where I will be posting videos of all the recipes I try from those cookbooks, starting today.

My first video: bread crumbs. A classic.

Bread Crumb Recipe

To make bread crumbs, you’ll need one thing – bread. The type of bread doesn’t matter, ends or normal pieces, gluten-free or otherwise. Today I used the ends of bread from many loaves that we save in the freezer. In a pinch, just use a whole loaf of bread.

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Cut your bread slices into the sized pieces you want.

My best recommendation is to cut the crumbs to the size you need

Place bread cubes on a baking sheet and put in the oven until they are completely dry.

Remove the bread crumbs. At this point, if you cut the crumbs small enough, you’re done, but if you didn’t continue. Place the crumbs in a food processor and pulse until they reach the desired size. Behind the scenes of my video, I tried my food processor but it wasn’t cutting the crumbs. I think the blades need sharpening.

Anyway, I used our NutriBullet, but it powdered the breadcrumbs, so I don’t recommend doing that.

These bread crumbs can be used for anything requiring bread crumbs. I used the powder for meatloaf.
