I ran out of breadcrumbs the other day and wondered how easy it would be to make up a batch of my own. As it turns out, pretty easy, indeed. I had breadcrumbs that were garlic flavored that I liked so I gave it a go with a head of garlic, peeled, minced, and added to the bread machine when it beeped, announcing itself ready for additions of suchlike. When the loaf finished I tore it into small pieces and laid those on a baking tray in a 200 degree oven until they were very dry. I was thinking that mold wouldn’t get a start if the bread crumbs were dry enough. My food processor quickly reduced those torn pieces into a fairly fine grained mass. To make doubly sure I ran these back through a low oven. The garlic smelled wonderful throughout this processing.I couldn’t think of a better use for a pile of breadcrumbs than a batch of the best ever onion rings. They turned out great! The mushroom Swiss cheeseburger wasn’t bad, either.
