Here are my approximate measurements -
3 cups of dried bread crumbs.
1 cup of crushed corn flakes or wheat bix
1 tablespoon of dried onion powder or 2 tablespoons of dried onion flakes.
1 tablespoons of rock salt ( less if desired )
2 teaspoons of paprika
1 teaspoon of dried garlic granules or powder
few peppercorns or pepper
about 1 tablespoon of dried chives or parsley
If you are using granules or flakes for your seasonings, whiz them in a coffee grinder or use a mortar and pestle.
Mix everything together in a large bowl. Place in an air tight container.. Once the lid is on give it a good shake to distribute the seasonings evenly over the bread crumbs. Store in the pantry.
* I use a food processor to blitz bread crusts from the ends of loaves of bread. ( saved up in the freezer ). Any bread can be used. The crumbs are then spread evenly on large oven trays and baked at 160 degrees Celsius for about 20 minutes until golden and dry. You may need to use a spoon to loosen the bread crumbs half way through baking to even out the drying process
* If you are running low on seasoned bread crumbs, add a couple of handfuls of crushed corn flakes and / or wheat bix to the mix.
