  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 3 tablespoons finely grated lemon zest (from about 2 lemons), optional
  • 5 tablespoons finely chopped fresh sage, optional

  • 3/4 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese, optional
  • 3 1/2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley or 1 teaspoon dried, optional
  • 3 tablespoons very finely chopped garlic, optional

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 275 degrees.

  2. Step 2

    Working in two batches, pulse bread cubes in a food processor to fine crumbs; transfer to a medium bowl. Transfer crumbs to a rimmed baking sheet and bake until dried and golden.

  3. Step 3

    Transfer breadcrumbs to a medium bowl. To make plain breadcrumbs, stir in 1 1/2 tablespoons coarse salt and season with pepper. To make lemon-sage breadcrumbs, stir in 1 1/2 tablespoons coarse salt, lemon zest, and sage; season with pepper. To make parmesan-oregano breadcrumbs, stir in 1 tablespoon salt, oregano, and Parmesan cheese; season with pepper. To make garlic-parsley breadcrumbs, stir in 1 1/2 tablespoons salt, parsley, and garlic; season with pepper.
