How to Toast Bread Crumbs


Fresh, homemade toasted bread crumbs can add extra flavor and texture to a wide range of dishes. You can sprinkle them over pasta and casseroles, for example, use them to batter foods for deep-frying or even toss a handful over a finished pizza to give it extra crunch. Toasting your bread crumbs may sound difficult or like a waste of time, but it is a simple process that you can complete in under 10 minutes.

Things You'll Need

  • 1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil per 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • Skillet
  • Pour the oil into a skillet large enough to hold all of the bread crumbs you wish to toast. Turn the heat on to medium and allow the oil to warm slightly.

  • Add the bread crumbs to the skillet. Mix thoroughly with a wooden spoon to evenly coat the bread crumbs in oil.

  • Stir the oiled bread crumbs constantly, keeping the skillet over medium heat, until the bread crumbs turn golden brown. This will probably take approximately 2 to 5 minutes. Do not leave the bread crumbs alone during this time; if you do not stir them constantly, you run the risk of burning some of them, which will affect the flavor of the whole batch.
