  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Cover a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Tear or cut up the bread slices into about 1-inch pieces and spread them out in a single layer on the pan.
  3. Bake for about 7 minutes. Flip each piece over and bake another 3 minutes or until the bread is golden and toasted. Remove the pan from the oven. Carefully transfer the parchment paper with bread pieces to a cooling rack and let the bread cool completely (about 5 minutes).*
  4. Place the cooled bread pieces in a food processor or blender. Process/blend until the breadcrumbs are fine. They are ready to use in any recipe now!


  • I prefer to use a 100% whole grain loaf, like Canyon Bakehouse or Udi’s brands.
  • *Instead of baking the bread, you can set the torn-up bread on the counter for a few days until it gets hard and stale. Then, process it into breadcrumbs.
