bread crumbs

I try to make from scratch or buy everything for Thanksgiving from local growers. It bummed me out last year when my dad brought a huge bag of bulk super market bread crumbs so I am thinking about making my own bread, then turning into crumbs for the stuffing. Am I biting off more than i can chew?

Sounds like a great idea. You can make the bread, and even the bread crumbs, way in advance. They both freeze well. Just defrost the bread 2 days before you need to make into breadcrumbs so it can properly dry out. The bread crumbs can be defrosted the day before use.

Even if you purchase a loaf.of bread for the stuffing (I like olive ciabatta), it would be so much better than what your dad bought unless he has a special source. Better warn him ahead of time. :)

Tons of bakeries will begin selling cubed bread for stuffing around this time of year. If you have a bakery that you like, I would suggest asking them if they plan to do so.
