Italian Bread Crumbs

Bread crumbs are super easy to make and you can adapt them to have whatever herbs and seasonings that you like….plus there’s no preservatives.  I had a problem using full containers of them before I thought they were too old and just taking up valuable shelf space so I ended up tossing them.  I made these with Italian seasonings and am using them for pork and chicken.  Shown below is sirloin pork chops.
Italian Bread Crumbs
4 slices of bread – white or wheat
½ tsp parsley
¼ tsp freshly ground pepper
½ tsp garlic powder
¼ tsp onion powder
¼ tsp oregano
¼ tsp thyme
1 ½ tsp salt

Place the bread on a baking sheet and place in over for  10 minutes at 325°.  Allow to cool.  Tear up the bread into smaller pieces and pulse until they are the size you want to use.  Add in the spices and herbs and pulse until blended.  Store extras in an airtight container.
