Since joining the Bread Baker's Apprentice Challenge last spring, I have filled my freezer with all different kinds of flour, loaves of bread and buns. It was time to clean it out so today I decided to make use of some white rolls for these Panko-style bread crumbs. I also cubed some other breads and toasted them in the oven so they'll be ready for my Thanksgiving stuffing.
I found this method all over the internet and evidently it has stirred up quite a debate regarding whether or not these bread crumbs should be labeled Panko, so in order to avoid any of that heated discussion here, I'm calling these Panko-style bread crumbs. Now everybody's happy, yes?
Use any white bread you have, remove the crusts, them simply process them in your food processor using the shredder/grater disc. This creates fluffy little pieces of bread that you'll then place on baking sheets and toast in a 300 degree oven for 8 minutes, stirring after 4 minutes. Be careful not to let them brown.
