Making breadcrumbs yourself

Making breadcrumbs yourself

Did you know that breadcrumbs can be used in very different kind of ways? They can be used for breading, filling or binding, as a side dish, piquant, salty or sweet. There are also bread recipes for which you need ground “old bread”. This not only brings a good taste to home-baked bread, but also keeps it fresh longer by binding water.

And do we know the quality of the bread or rolls from which the breadcrumbs are made? Not really… So just like with home-baked bread, you simply know what you have with home-ground breadcrumbs. Using a Salzburg grain mill for this can be a really good idea.Making breadcrumbs yourself

For your homemade breadcrumbs, it is best to use bread that you have baked yourself, preferably of course from wholemeal flour. It is important that the bread is not too oily. Cut it into small pieces. This will help the bread dry faster and also make it easier to slide from the hopper of your flour mill to the millstones. If you don’t have enough time to dry your bread, you can also simply remove the moisture from it in the oven.

Now you can grind the dried bread pieces with your Salzburg Grain Mill. It might be necessary to help carefully with your hand to make sure that the bread gets to the grinding chamber through the inlet.

Thanks to the coarse-fine adjustment of our mills, you can not only produce flour in different degrees of fineness, but also breadcrumbs. Depending on what you use them for, you can have very coarse to very fine breadcrumbs.
