Home-made breadcrumb coating


Home-made breadcrumb coating
The crispy crust on many fried (or baked) foods comes from a breadcrumb coating. You can buy this, of course, but it's easy and much better to make your own at home.

For one thing, you will know excatly what's in it – just bread – which is not the case for the commercial product. This is also a great way to use up bits of dry bread that would otherwise go to waste.

Step by step recipe


Stage 1 - 3 min.
Home-made breadcrumb coating : Photo of step #1
Cut 200 g bread into pieces no bigger than your thumb.

Rescue crusts and dry ends of loaves to avoid waste. Here it is crusts of sandwich bread.

Spread the pieces of bread on a baking sheet.

Stage 2 - 1 hour

Put in the oven at 210°F (100°C) fro 1 to 2 hours. The idea is to dry out the bread without toasting it, so that the breadcrumbs will keep well.

Stage 3 - 2 min.

After this time, leave to cool, then tip the bread into a food-processor or blender goblet.

Stage 4 - 2 min.

Stage 5

Keep dry in an airtight jar.

Remarks

Another option for drying: use the residual heat of the oven after cooking something (such as a roast). As soon as you have finished cooking, turn the oven off and put in the tray of bread for 1 hour.
