How do folks make the bread crumbs for their feasts?
I'm only doing a small luncheon for ~20 people and I've already gone
through one loaf of bread and only gotten about 3 cups of bread
crumbs, used in one dish, hais. I expected one loaf of bread to
provide more than enough crumbs for my several dishes.
I started with a loaf of whole wheat bread and let it sit in the oven
at low heat. One set for multiple hours and one for just and hour or
two. I didn't detect a big difference between the two. Both crumbled
as I broke them into a ziplock bag. I then simply broke up the larger
crumbs with my fingers. I considered rolling over the bag with my
roller, but it didn't seem worth it.
So when you need a probably much larger amount of bread crumbs for a
feast, how do you get them? How many loaves of bread does it take? Do
you use whole wheat bread? Or white bread? Or whatever is available
for the cheapest price?
