Bread Crumbs (Italian-American Style)
by James Belardo
You have some day-old bread (maybe several days), don’t fret, make some bread crumbs! Seriously, this is so much better for cutlets, schnitzel or anything that uses bread crumbs. We’ve used this for chicken breasts and even as a topping for a seafood pasta!
1 cup whole-wheat bread cut into cubes
1 or 2 cloves garlic, finely diced
Fresh Italian, flat-leaf parsley
1/4 cup finely diced onion
1/4 cup grated Pecorino Romano or Parmesan cheese
Salt and Pepper
1/8 cup butter
2 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
1. Use a food-processor to make crumbs from the bread.
2. Mix crumbs, grated cheese, parsley, salt and pepper together.
7. Remove from heat, store in fridge.
