Learn how to make fresh breadcrumbs the easy way then use them in our sweet and savoury breadcrumb recipes like chicken goujons or treacle tart


  • 50 g (2oz) day-old bread (white or wholemeal)
  • 15 g (Ĺ oz) chopped hazelnuts, optional

Stale bread makes the best breadcrumbs and freezing the bread before processing it makes it easier to turn it into breadcrumbs.


  1. Place the bread into a processor and process into fine fresh breadcrumbs. (For dried breadcrumbs, toast the bread first). You could also try grating the bread to make fine breadcrumbs if you don't have a food processor.
  2. Add the nuts and process again to mix together.
  3. Use the fresh breadcrumbs in our sweet or savoury recipes like chicken goujons or treacle tart. Store fresh breadcrumbs in the freezer and use them as and when.
