Today's recipe for Nom Nom Monday is super easy. I had a long day at the house, and I wasn't that enthusiastic about making something. So I'm using some pics from a few days ago when I made some breadcrumbs.
I've been saving the ends of bread for months. I save them by tearing the bread up into small bits like above, and then I store them in a plastic bread bag in the freezer. I love potato bread, so that's what I used, but this would work with any bread.
I preheated the oven to 350ºF, and covered a cookie sheet with foil. Then I sprayed the tray down with oil, and sprayed the bread bits with oil. I seasoned them with seasoned salt, and popped them in the oven for twelve minutes or so. When they were toasty brown I pulled them out.
Next I threw them in a blender, and mixed in some dried thyme. I used about a tablespoon per cup of bread.
This is what it looked like when done. I had 8 cups of bread, and that resulted in about 4 cups of breadcrumbs. It's always useful to have breadcrumbs on hand. There are so many yummy dishes I can make with them. Last night my mom used them to make zucchini fries. They were tasty, a great healthy alternative to french fries.
Well, I'm tired and it's not even eight! 'Night! Happy DIYing, chris
