How To Make Gluten Free Breadcrumbs

Homemade Is Always Best
I was in the process of making a Chicken and Tarragon Kiev when I realised that I didn't have enough pre-bought gluten free breadcrumbs. It was the best thing to have run out of ever because making my own provided a much better result. It's so quick and easy, I'll never by pre-made again.

I've been using Hale and Hearty gluten free breadcrumbs for years and they've always been great but there's no comparison to those and the ones I made.

They Served Me Well
Like I say, these breadcrumbs have been a staple in my cupboard for years now and I've created a lot of recipes using them. Just so happenes that I've bettered them.

It couldn't be more simple but you'll need a chopper of some description. I use a Kenwood Mini (UK / US ), it's great for a small kitchen like ours.

To make the breadcrumbs I used a trusty DS Gluten Free Brown Ciabatta - the only gluten free bread worth eating in my opinion.

I cut it into three slices and toasted it until crispy, I then broke the slices up, put them in the chopper, whizzed a bit and hey presto, homemade breadcrumbs! Best to spread them evenly on a flat surface so they dry out before using them.

There's really no comparison between these and the shop bought ones I had been using, see the original Kiev recipe to compare.

My Finest Kiev To Date

Tastes As Good As It Looks
If you want to make this kiev the recipe linked above is exactly the same, just use your own breadcrumbs. I didn't think I could better my kievs, but I did.
