Stale bread in the pantry is not a bad thing!
You can use breadcrumbs for cooking hamburgers and chopped steak, breaded fish, cordon bleu or various sauces.
Crumble stale bread in the food processor or grate it.
Store breadcrumbs in cool, dry area in the iron can; keep tightly covered after opening. Breadcrumbs can be stored for a long time if they have been stored properly.
