GLUTEN FREE BREADCRUMBS – Homemade

Homemade is almost always better and in the case of gluten-free breadcrumbs, homemade is LIGHT YEARS above any store-bought breadcrumbs I have ever tried.  Breadcrumbs are a cinch to make too.  My go-to gluten-free bread is Udi’s Whole Grain Bread Loaf (for a $1 coupon click here).  I use this bread for my daughter’s lunches and it make great breadcrumbs. 

To make the breadcrumbs, toast 9 slices of bread until they are very crunchy, but not burnt.

Once cooled, crumble the toast into your food processor (I use my Cuisinart 11-cup processor).  Process until the consistency below.

If you plan on flavoring your breadcrumbs, add the flavoring now.  Oftentimes I will make Italian Breadcrumbs.  To do so, add 2 tsp Italian Seasoning (I used Morton & Bassett) and 1 tsp Himalayan or Celtic Salt.

Process until well incorporated and the appropriate texture.  If you are NOT flavoring the breadcrumbs, simply process until the appropriate texture.

Pour the breadcrumbs onto a tray and bake for 10-15 minutes at 375 degrees to crisp.  Watch them VERY carefully so they do not burn.

Allow the breadcrumbs to cool and store them in an airtight container.  I usually make them right before using them, so I have yet to discover how long they will last in the pantry!
