1. Preheat the oven to 325°F. On a large baking sheet, put the bread slices in a single layer.
Bake until the bread is completely dry, about 20 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool for 5 to 10 minutes.
2. Insert the universal blade into the work bowl of the Cuisinart® 7-Cup Food Processor. Break toasted bread into medium-size pieces and add to work bowl. Pulse 6 to 8 times, then process until the desired texture is achieved, 30 to 60 seconds.
Note: Breadcrumbs can also be made from unbaked day-old bread. Simply break into pieces
and follow the instructions above until finely chopped.
Seasoned Breadcrumbs: Add ¼ teaspoon each kosher salt, dried oregano, dried basil, garlic
powder, and onion powder to work bowl with bread pieces and process as above.
