Save Bread Ends for Bread Crumbs

Save your bread-ends in a plastic bag in the freezer until you have a quart or more. These should not be dried out first. Thaw out and process in a blender or food processor until crumbs are coarse. Spread out on a pan and let dry. Regrind them into fine crumbs. Now you have bread crumbs to use in recipes.


Mix them with Parmesan cheese, garlic powder and whatever herbs you like and use them for breading chicken or pork chops to bake in the oven. This makes a delicious crunchy coating.

Mix them with butter, cinnamon, and sugar for a sweet, crunchy topping for muffins, apple crisp, and such.
