As I’ve mentioned in my Gluten Free Bread Crumbs Recipe, 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 or croutons from! This is almost the same as my crumbs recipe other than you just cube or tear the bread!
- 1 pound Gluten Free Heals broken into pieces or cubed
- 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 or 325. Place pieces on baking sheet and bake for about 20 to 25 minutes. Stir occasionally to let the moisture out and get the croutons 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. I usually test the bread by eating one every once in a while to see if it’s crunchy throughout. Allow to completely cool before storing in a zip lock bag. They should keep for about 6 months if completely cooled before storing.
