How many times have you found yourself out of breadcrumbs when you need it for a recipe? I have something you should try the next time you're faced with that problem of what to do with that awaiting casserole.
All you need to do is place a hunk of your French or Italian bread in the freezer for about a half hour to harden it up.
When it's time to remove it, you grate some of that frozen bread with your hand grater for sprinkling onto that dish and bake or roast as usual.
You'll like how this little tip will help in a fix. Besides, this is also a great way to use bread that is going stale. I do hope you try this one.
