so it’s occurred to me that, given how many of my recipes have the instruction to ‘top with breadcrumbs and bake’, i should probably tell you how i make baking breadcrumbs. it’s dead easy, as you’ll see below.
the 2 heels from a loaf of bread that you were going to throw out anyway
1-2 Tbsp margarine
1-2 Tbsp nutritional yeast
1/2 tsp salt
1/2-1 tsp paprika (optional)
toast the bread heels, then tear up and stick in a food processor with all the other ingredients. whizz until fine.
note: if you’re just sticking breadcrumbs in a salad or something, and not baking them, don’t bother with the other ingredients, just use the heels of bread.
