Thrifty Thursday - Make Your Own Bread Crumbs

A while back I had run out of bread crumbs but didn't want to go and buy some.  I started saving the heals of our bread and dried them out.  When they were completely dried I broke them into small enough pieces to fit in my blender.  I blended them up until they were the right 'bread crumb' consistency.  Add a little seasoning if you wish, or just add the seasoning when you use the bread crumbs in a recipe.  Saves you a trip to the store and keeps a few dollars in your pocket.  And really, who eats the heals anyway?


  1. Your dear mom eats heals :) - at least I do if it is good bread. Your grandma VV liked heals too. BUT - I am sure they do make good bread crumbs. :)

    1. Well...I guess there are/were two people in this world who likes heals. :) I don't mind them toasted and slathered in butter. Or homemade bread heals.
