#CucinaDelloZio - #Homemade #BreadCrumbs - after some patience

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!

Ingredients
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

Directions
1. Use a food-processor to make crumbs from the bread.

2. Mix crumbs, grated cheese, parsley, salt and pepper together.

3. In a large flat frying pan set to medium heat, heat olive oil and sauté the garlic and onion until garlic begins to turn golden and onion translucent.

4. Add the butter, allow butter to melt and coats evenly.
