First bake a loaf of bread that is too squat by half.







To prepare the breadcrumbs:

  1. Slice the bread into thin slices
  2. Arrange the slices  on a sheet pan
  3. Gently bake in the oven at 170 degrees F overnight.
  4. At this point, the dried slices will keep nicely in the oven until you have time to pulverize them into breadcrumbs.
  5. Forget about the bread in the oven.
  6. On a chilly morning, set the oven on Self-Clean for 3 hours.






The Unfortunate Breadcrumbs double as charcoal. You can see the embers in the slices!
