i found that with fresh bread it works better if you toast it first, then whizz in blender.

won't it go all sticky though?

(for the record it's el cheapo kingsmill if that makes a difference!)

if no blender then grate it on a cheese grater - watch your fingers though!

With making bread crumbs the staler the bread the better so if it is fresh put in a low oven to dry out.

what you making?

Cheapo Kingsmill and you PG the very thought of it.

you can use a hand blender too. it's a bit messier but it works!

skirmish Fri 29-Jun-07 14:53:56

it's not for me - i buy it for the um...birds

of course, being pg, i have made my own bread with ingredients grown in the garden!

I dry it out in a low oven and then put it in the blender if it's fresh.

If you're using the bread crumbs to top e.g. a fish pie, or to make stuffing, you can just cut it into really small cubes. It works really well, just slightly chunkier. Obviously you need finer crumbs if adding to meatballs etc.

It grates or blends more easily if it's a few days old. If it's fresh, dry it out in an oven a bit first.
