I hate having to throw away leftover or day old bread, so this was perfect! I used Italian seasoning in addition to salt and pepper. They turned out way better than store bought.

I tried this recipe because I wanted to make gluten free bread crumbs for my mom. It worked out well because I could use gf bread. I seasoned it with garlic, salt and pepper. My mom loved it! Success!
