We have several recipes that require the use of bread crumbs. For many years I purchased bread crumbs and they are relatively inexpensive for around $2 you can buy a small canister of Great Value Brand. But you can simply make your own bread crumbs from the heels of bread. Our family goes through a ridiculous amount of bread and no one really likes the heels so I use them for breadcrumbs.
- heels of bread, random pieces of bread, etc…
- leave them over night or toast
- Put in food processor grind until finely chopped
- I keep the bag in the freezer
Total Cost: $0
Savings over 1 year (assuming a monthly purchase): $24
