Fresh Crumbs in a Flash
Fresh bread crumbs from a quality loaf can turn a dish from good to great. Here's how to have them at a moment's notice.
For fresh bread crumbs any time, keep leftover French or Italian bread in the freezer. When you need fresh crumbs, pull out the loaf and a cheese grater and grate the frozen bread against the large holes. Because the bread is frozen, it grates easily, and in small pieces, it thaws fast.
