Homemade Bread Crumbs

As I looked through my cupboard I found some hamburger buns that needed to get used up, so I made bread crumbs and added them to my big bag in the freezer. I realized if I’m going to get all these crumbs eaten before we move, I’d better get a move on (no pun intended)! Here’s 10 ideas for using up bread crumbs. The ones in italics are things I’ve actually tried.

  1. Make your own shake and bakes.
  2. Make bread crumb cookies.
  3. Use as a coating in homemade chicken fingers.
  4. Top a casserole or homemade mac’n'cheese.
  5. Use in meatloaf.
  6. Use in meatballs.
  7. Eat it on pasta.
  8. Coat and bake some potatoes.

What are your favorite ways to use up bread crumbs?
