Bread Crumb Equivalencies

What do I do if I have frozen breadcrumbs and a recipe calls for bread slices processed into crumbs?

Grinding stale bread into bread crumbs and freezing them for later use is thrifty, but if your recipe calls for "1 slice sandwich bread, processed into crumbs," how much of your freezer stash should you use? Here's a handy guide.

| 1 LARGE SLICE (1.5 oz.)SANDWICH BREAD | FROZEN CRUMBS | FROZEN TOASTED CRUMBS | | --- | --- | --- | | Finely Processed | 2/3 cup | 1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon | | Coarsely Processed | 1 cup | 2/3 cup |
