Have you guys ever made your own breadcrumbs? I’m a huge fan of panko, so I usually just go ahead and keep a bunch in my pantry, but sometimes when I run out and can’t be bothered to go to the store, I’ll make up quick batches of breadcrumbs using whatever I have lying around. I’ve done it before with English muffins and here I’ve done it with brioche.
