Breadcrumbs coming out soggy

bmorecupcake | Mar 28, 2008 05:49 PM

I just mafe fresh breadcrumbs for the first time in the food processor with a hard day old baguette. I fried two batches of fish, one with the store-bought breadcrumbs, and one with the fresh breadcrumbs. The fresh ones soaked up a lot of oil and didn't get crispy like the store ones. What could I be doing wrong?

Also, is it safe on the food processor blade to be chopping up hard bread?
