Bread Crumbs

 
 

bread crumbs

 

Save money on bread crumbs making them the most economical way possible.  Use bread that you no longer deem fresh enough for any other purpose.  To make them quickly, slightly freeze the bread, and then put it in a blender to make crumbs.  Remember to add crumbs from other grains, like crackers and cereals.

 

Here are a couple recipes to use your bread crumbs.

 

Canned Chicken and Broccoli Casserole

Ingredients

1 large can chicken,  flaked
2 packages frozen broccoli
1 cube of butter
5 Tbsps flour
1 1/2 cup chicken broth
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
1 cup whipping cream
3/4 cups bread crumbs
salt and pepper to taste

Open the can of chicken and flake it into a 9x13 inch baking dish.  Cook the frozen broccoli and place on top of the chicken.

Melt the butter in a sauce pan, and gradually blend in the flour.  Add the broth and cheese and stir until thick. Then add the whipping cream.

When blended, pour this mixture over the chicken and broccoli. Top with bread crumbs.

Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes, or until casserole is hot.

3/4 cup melted butter
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopping celery
