Homemade: Breadcrumbs


I always save any stale bread and the heels off our loaves in the freezer, then blitz in the thermomix to make batches of breadcrumbs. A bag of breadcrumbs (just re-use one of the bread bags) keeps so well in the freezer and can be pulled out as needed. We’ve done this for years with various food processors. It usually takes forever and involves breaking the bread into very small pieces and a lot of jiggling and tapping of the food processor to get the job done. The thermomix effortlessly blitzes chunks of frozen bread into fine breadcrumbs. Speed 9, 10-12 seconds, job done. It is still one of my favourite things to make in the thermomix – so simple yet so impressive!

These breadcrumbs were a mix of stale pane di casa, sourdough and wholemeal loaf. 100 times better than breadcrumbs from the supermarket.

  4. Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up.

    The words in your post seem to be running off the screen
    in Opera. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to
    let you know. The design and style look great though! Hope you get the
    problem solved soon. Kudos
