What do you do with all of those heels and the last couple of slices of bread? I've been throwing them into the freezer recently and yesterday I pulled them out and did something I've wanted to do for a long time - I made "fresh" bread crumbs. It took about 90 seconds, all totaled, and I can't wait to use them. Maybe I'll add some dried herbs before I coat those extra thin chicken breasts I'm planning to lightly fry in olive oil.
Directions? Rip bread into large pieces. Place in food processor. Pulse. Done. Satisfying to my cheapskate self and hopefully to the taste buds as well. What are your thrifty kitchen tips? Got some to share?
