Bread Crumbs for Squash Bread Pudding and Sausage Apple Stuffing

This Thanksgiving, we got back to bread crumb basics. You CAN buy all your bread crumbs pre-cubed and dried at the grocery store. But, it’s pretty fun (and easy) to make your own bread crumbs at home. We’ll use these in the sausage-apple-parsnip stuffing and in a butternut squash-wild mushroom bread pudding.

We used Essential Baking Company bread: sour white, columbia, pugliese, and rosemary. Cube the bread into one-inch cubes. Spread them out in one layer on a cookie sheet and baked at 350 for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, make sure they’re pretty dry, like a crouton.

To store them, we put them back in the bakery paper bags they came in. We’ll use these in recipes to come soon.

    I’m suspicious of how easy you are making this whole thanksgiving meal look! How many people are you cooking for?

      Well, thankfully we had a pre-Thanksgiving meeting and planned out who’s bringing what. So, we have friends bringing lots of great food, too. This will be a sit-down dinner for ten!
