So I don't know if you have seen my page that talks about food ingredients yet... Basically, the less ingredients a food has-the better for you. As a gluten-free eater you're probably a little used to looking at labels by now. I want you to take a look at this food label manufactured by Wal-Mart under the Great Value name:
Is that crazy or what? I counted over 60 ingredients!!! Wow, even if you are a gluten-eater I would NOT eat this! Did you see how many times a sugar substance showed up? "High Fructose Corn Syrup, Corn Syrup... Brown Sugar, Honey, Molasses, Sugar..." I didn't know bread crumbs needed so much sweetener! Did you know that ingredients are listed in order of the quantity? So the top ingredient is the biggest amount found in that food. Did you also know companies purposely add different kinds of the same ingredient to disguise that ingredient from being the biggest amount? I bet if the sugar wasn't split up into 6 different ingredients it would be one of the top ingredients.
Seriously, how many different ingredients do you have to add to make good bread crumbs? There should be more like 2: bread and crumbs. (ha ha)
Anyways, I have been playing around with this next recipe for a while and finally had a break through or what I like to call "website worthy" result. It's superb tasting and very versatile. It doesn't get as crispy as a normal bread crumbs but you can use it to coat a variety of different foods and use it in recipes that call for bread crumbs. (We just used it in another recipe tonight that I'll post soon.) It's got a little bit of everything in it but, trust me, it's worth it!
