Food you never need to buy: Bread crumbs

Bread crumbs are really easy to make and save food being wasted - instead of those bread heels or stale bread going into the trash (or compost), they are reborn into something useful. Use your crumbs to make dinner in a flash: Kid-friendly breaded tilapia or as the binder in black bean and corn veggie burgers. The point is, we don't need to be spending money on a product that has too many strange ingredients and uses packaging when we can make it ourselves for free.

To make your bread crumbs, use a serrated knife (the one with teeth) to cut stale bread into cubes - the exact size doesn't matter. Toss cubes into a baking sheet and bake at 250 until completely dry. If you drop a cube onto the tray, it should clank. Once the cubes have cooled, process in your food processor until finely ground. Store in a tightly sealed container.
