Works For Me Wednesday

I have decided to participate in Works For Me Wednesday - started by Rocks in My Dryer.

Heres my tip for today. I actually picked this tip up from one of the WAH girls, but I love it. I found I was always needing bread crumbs for something or another and didn't have any, and sure wasn't going to pay for bread crumbs at the store, so I do this now. I keep a large freezer bag in my freezer when I have ends of bread or buns that don't get used, I store them in that bag. Every so often or when I need crumbs for something I take out that bag and run the bread through my mini food processor. I then store the crumbs in a smaller freezer bag. I always have bread crumbs ready to go or bread ready to make into crumbs.

Great idea! I am with you why pay for "bread crumbs" plus we never eat the ends of our bread anyway!

That is so smart! Never thought of it, and I'm always throwing away the heel of the bread. Not anymore! :)

good plan - i have them in there too. but i am such a NON cook that I often let them sit there too long and don't use them!! (rolling my eyes at myself LOL)

Neat! Thanks!

I use the heels for crumbs, too. Never thought of saving them in the freezer, though. Very frugal.

I never buy bread crumbs. I use stove top stuffing in the canister. It adds a lot of flavor, esp. to meatloaf!
