Seasoned Bread Crumbs
Low Sodium Recipe
A good-for-you alternative to high-sodium packaged bread crumbs, using garlic powder and a handful of dried herbs. The crumbs make a savory topping for casseroles and a crispy coating for pork, chicken and fish.
4 ounces Italian bread, cubed
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor; cover and process until fine crumbs form. Transfer to a 15 x 10 x 1-inch baking pan. Bake, uncovered, at 350-degrees for 8 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring occasionally. Cool. Store in an airtight container.
