Make your own Bread Crumbs
I used to buy breadcrumbs, but one day I looked at the ingredients and was appalled by all the artificial junk added. Then I realized how easy (and how much cheaper) it is to make your own-- just put bread slices in the blender, finely chop, and presto! I usually add some garlic salt, oregano, and basil to give them more flavor. Just keep them in the freezer (I use a ziplock freezer bag) and they're ready to go when you need them-- no unthawing necessary! If you'd like, you could toast them in the oven for a crisper texture. Using bread from a breadmaker is best since there are no added preservatives.
