How to Make Fresh Breadcrumbs

Breadcrumbs are best made using day old bread and can be a handy way of using up the last few slices of a loaf although crusts should be avoided. If not using fresh breadcrumbs immediately you could turn them into Home Made Dried Breadcrumbs or Cheesy Breadcrumb Pangratatto. Store leftover breadcrumbs in the freezer until required or for making Queen of Puddings or Cheddar Stuffed Mushrooms.
