quick tip make your own breadcrumbs

If you have left over bread you can easily make your own bread crumbs! All you need to do is put the heels of your bread in the freezer.

When you need bread crumbs just put the bread in the food processor. This will grind it up so you have bread crumbs! If you don’t have a food processor you can use a cheese grater or finely chop it.

No one in my family will eat the heels of the bread so this is a great way to give it a new life!

      French toast and meatloaf…

      I put butter, salt and pepper on mine and use them to butter my corn on the cob. You simply wrap the heel around the corn and twist. Works great!

      You can also use the heels of bread to spread a bunch of butter on and use as a butterer for corn on the cob.:)

      bread pudding or homemade croutons

      My 13-month old son gets them as sandwiches. Heck, he’s still at that age where he’ll eat ANYTHING, so I’m just going to enjoy it while it lasts. Bread heels and all. :)

      we do this all the time- along with any lonely hamburger buns, homemade bread that’s gotten stale, etc- we have a freezer bag that we add it to. Periodically i toss them in the food processor and then into another freezer bag so I’ve got crumbs ready to go for recipes. Add in basil, oregano, salt for italian breading…

      we fight over them in my house we all love the heels

    • laray

      I make a grilled cheese and flip the outer part inside. My 5 yr old never knows.

      If you’re using a fattier version of ground beef to make meatloaf, you can put the heels on the bottom of the pan to soak up the grease from the meat. Then just throw them away!
