  • 1 lemon zested
  • 1 tsp chili flakes
  • 2 tsp herbes de provence
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 pinch pepper
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 200 g bread preferably old


  • Blend bread in food processor and place in a frying pan
  • Toast bread on medium heat for a minute or 2 and then add all dry ingredients, toss and then add in oil a little at a time and toss
  • You can now either turn the heat down to low and make your breadcrumbs in the pan or transfer to a sheet pan and bake in the oven @ 150c until golden and crispy - approx 10 minutes
  • Store in an airtight container



Essential Tools

  • food processor
  • measuring spoons
  • large frying pan
  • baking sheet
  • wooden spoon


  • the levels of herbs and spices I have added can be easily adjustable so if you like it spicier then go wild!
  • you can use dried rosemary or dried thyme instead of herbes de provence
  • breadcrumbs will last about a month in your pantry if stored correctly
