Italian Seasoned Bread Crumbs
to make at home (instead of buying at the store)
After I moved in with my boyfriend I thought I had remembered everything I had unloaded from my pantry into our new pantry. Apparently not... because I didn't have any Italian bread crumbs (needed for chicken parmesan). And I think "oh CRAP!" until I got creative.
- 2 C (lightly smushed) of hand torn slices of your favorite Italian loaf
- 1/3 C shredded parmesan cheese
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 Tbs dried parsley flakes
- 1 tsp dried oregano
- 1 tsp dried basil
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
Add half of the ingredients to a food processor and blend. Remove to a tupperware, then the other half. Unless of course you have a large food processor, then do the whole thing at once! Mine is pretty small though. Makes about 2 1/2 cups.
