Black Section Separator

These are not your traditional breadcrumbs. This Panko Bread Crumbs recipe makes those light, crunchy bread crumbs you see in delicious recipes like chicken katsu or crispy shrimp.


– 4 slices of white wheat bread – 1/4 teaspoon salt – 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper – 1/4 teaspoon


Warm the oven up to 300°F. Put cardboard around two sheet trays and set them aside.

Step 1

Take off the crusts from each piece of bread. Split the bread in half and cut each half into two very small pieces. This will make bigger pieces.

Step 2

Place them in a large bowl. Mix in half of the herbs, pepper, and salt. Put the rest of the slices in a food processor and cut them up into smaller pieces.

Step 3

Put the lid on and grind the bread at a medium speed for 5 to 10 seconds at a time. The crumbs will be ready in 40 to 50 seconds.

Step 4

Add the rest of the spices to taste. Put the smaller crumbs on a baking sheet that has been lined with parchment paper. Put them in the oven and toast them for four to five minutes,

Step 5

until they are just beginning to turn golden brown. The bigger pieces should take the same amount of time to toast.

Step 6

Watch out for it! When it's done, mix the smaller and larger pieces together and let them cool all the way down.

Step 7

Put the panko in a container that has a lid, such as a bottle or jar, and store it in a dry location.
