How To Make Fresh And Dried Breadcrumbs


Inspired by conversations on the Food52 Hotline, we're sharing tips and tricks that make navigating all of our kitchens easier and more fun. Today, Amanda shows us how to make fresh and dried breadcrumbs.

Recently, Amanda pulled out her box grater for a neat pastry trick for butter. The box grater makes a triumphant comeback this week to bring you the best way to make both fresh and dried breadcrumbs.

Watch Amanda process, grate, and zest breadcrumbs into all shapes and sizes. Once you feel comfortable with the numerous methods, fearlessly roast cauliflower with gremolata bread crumbs as a perfect side dish for your winter dinner.
