I remove the crusts (not everyone does this step, and it is not always specifically mentioned) and then run through my food processor until it's finely ground. I have on occasion grated it by hand. I don't always stale or toast the bread either, it depends on the recipe I'm working with and what I can glean from that and experimentation. 

I remove crusts if I'm making something that's supposed to be white, but 
otherwise, I just leave them on.
