I made some really good meatballs the other day using a recipe from a restaraunt owner in NY. I spent a lot of time making the breadcrumbs and realized later that the portion of the recipe for making the crumbs yielded 4 cups, well I only needed 1/4 cup for the actual meatballs, I was pretty upset.
Well, a friend of mine used the same recipe but substituted store bought breadcrumbs and the meatballs were just as good as mine.
Is there really any difference in using home made breadcrumbs as opposed to store bought? And if so what is it? Is it just in certain types of recipes?
I still have 3 3/4 cups of breadcrumbs if anyone needs some. Or maybe you could send me a recipe that I could throw them in.
