Difficulty: Easy - for beginners


1 pound loaf rustic Italian bread such as Pugliese
1 cup finely grated pecorino cheese
2 garlic cloves put through a garlic press
2 tablespoons dried Italian herbs
3 tablespoons dried parsley flakes
1/2 tablespoon fine sea salt


The day before you plan to make breadcrumbs: Slice the bread into ½ inch slices. Place slices on cake racks to dry overnight. In batches, crumble or tear bread slices into the bowl of a food processor fitted with the steel blade. Pulse the bread multiple times until the crumbs are about the size of a dime. Add the cheese, garlic, herbs and salt and continue to pulse until the breadcrumbs become fine. Store what you are not using in the freezer or in your refrigerator for 3-4 days
