I just had an unbelievably frustrating experience making bread crumbs from a nice loaf of homemade bread. I sliced several pieces of bread and toasted. Next I chopped them into smaller pieces and baked in a 300 degree oven for 10 minutes and left out overnight. They were quite brittle and I thought ready to go. Next I put them in a food processor where they whirled around the blade without becoming crumbs. After that I chopped them on the cutting board only to find them all over my kitchen. I tried rolling them with a rolling pin in a large ziploc bag, this time lots of little holes in the bag. Perhaps I'm not in the cooking mood today. What are your best tips for making bread crumbs? Thank you in advance!
