1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Bake slices of bread in a single layer for about 20 minutes or until bread is completely dried out. (Since you are only baking four slices of bread, this is the perfect task for your toaster oven, saving energy and money.)

2. Insert the chopping blade into the work bowl of the food processor. Directly into the work bowl, break the bread into pieces and pulse 6 to 8 times, then process on High until desired texture is achieved, about 30 to 60 seconds.

Note: Breadcrumbs can also be processed from day-old bread. Simply break into uniform pieces and follow above instruction until finely chopped.

Tip: For seasoned breadcrumbs, add ¼ teaspoon each dried oregano, dried basil, garlic powder and ground onion flakes to toasted bread and process as above.
