Homemade Breadcrumbs

Next time you grab lunch out, save the roll that comes with your soup or salad and use it for bread crumbs. Bread can be anywhere from a day to few weeks old; as long as it’s not moldy, its fair game. Simply decrease baking time if bread is more stale. These homemade breadcrumbs were originally used for meatballs, and I found they made them more tender than store-bought bread crumbs. Read the original post here.

Alex Milling is a recent graduate of Northwestern University and cannot wait to try another meatball shop recipe.
