When my son first got diagnosed with celiac disease, I had a difficult time finding substitutes for certain foods and ingredients: one of which was gluten-free breadcrumbs.
One day, my husband saw me chopping up day-old gluten-free bread (and ends) into fine pieces and he said, “Why don’t you just throw that in the blender?” So, in that moment of embarrassment and McGyver-like genius, a time-saving, cost-free solution for breadcrumbs was born! This was perfect, as I could control how fine or coarse I could make my breadcrumbs. I put any extras in a labeled freezer bag and toss them in the freezer for future use. Ta-da!
