4 slices Healthy Life Bread (any variety)
Cut each slice of bread into 1/2 inch cubes. Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Spread cubes evenly on cookie sheet covered with parchment paper, and pop into oven for about 1 hour. Remove from oven and cool on platter for at least 1 hour before processing or storing. Cubes may feel a tiny bit soft when removed from oven but will harden during cooling time. To crumb, use a food processor or blender large enough to accommodate the amount you desire. A larger amount of cubes will crumb easier in processor than a small amount but do NOT overfill as you could damage your food processor. Store cubes or crumbs in gallon zippered storage bags, tightly sealed glass jar or plastic container until ready to use.
When ready to use (so your seasoning will be fresh), add your favorite seasonings to taste. You can also use the crumbs to add texture in a flour coating for a number of your favorite foods: meatloaf, meatballs, dressing, etc.
