When you need crumbs for your recipe, there are several ways you can make bread, cracker or dry cereal crumbs. You can use a food processor or grinder, or you can cut corners and make it really simple and quick, with nothing to clean.

Place the dried bread, cereal or crackers into a small freezer bag and roll your rolling pin over it a few times. Place the bag in such a way that the contents do not come out or partially close the zipped plastic storage bag. Apply pressure to the rolling pin as required to crush the contents.

It only takes a couple of minutes and then you're ready to measure the crumbs for your recipe. Repeat the process as required. Bread should be completely dried before crushing.

Simple and no mess! Nothing to wash, just discard the bag.
