Soft Vs. Dry Bread Crumbs

Pantry Pointers

Soft bread crumbs are made from fresh or slightly stale bread. Tear the bread apart with a fork or use a blender or food processor to break it into fluffy crumbs. Pile gently into a measuring cup and do not pack. Dry bread crumbs may be purchased or made from very dry bread or zwieback crackers. Place in a plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin. Spoon into a measuring cup.
