I have a Chicken Casserole that we just can’t do without at Holiday time that has seasoned bread crumbs on top. Finding Gluten free bread crumbs locally is difficult and expensive.
We don’t particularly care for the heals in our bread so they are perfect to make bread crumbs from! Every time we’re done with a loaf of Udi’s Gluten Free bread I throw the 2 heals in the freezer! Very quickly, I have plenty of heals to make crumbs from!
- 1 pound Gluten Free Heals broken into pieces
- 2 tablespoons dried oregano or thyme
- 2 tablespoons dried basil or parsley
- 2 teaspoons salt, or to taste
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper, or to taste
Preheat oven to 300. Process bread in food processor until desired consistency. Place crumbs on baking sheet and bake for about 10 to 15 minutes. Stir occasionally to let the moisture out and get the crumbs evenly baked. I find the gluten free bread retains the moisture pretty well during this process. Once bread is completely dried out take out of oven and add spices. Allow to completely cool before storing in a zip lock bag. They should keep for about 6 months if completely cooled before storing.
