Hi all :)

Take some breadcrumbs from a container which is stored in the fridge

Raw chicken cutlets > flour > raw beaten egg > bcrumbs > fryer

I am not going to put the unused bcrumbs back into the container with the rest, but would like to keep them, as opposed to throwing them out. Assuming I keep them separate, will they stay in the fridge for a few days?

Thanks in advance.

If it is a small amount it gets tossed out: but a cup or more I will keep in the freezer and use it again.

As everyone has told you the crumbs should be thrown out. But no one explained why.

The bacteria in the chicken will contaminate the bread crumbs and so to be safe, it is best to throw the crumbs away.

If you do save them and use them again to bread something else, there's a possibility of contamination.

I might have misread, but I don't think the unused breadcrumbs ever came into contact with the chicken.

Assuming 3 bowls: flour, egg, and bread crumbs... Those crumbs in the tire bowl will pick up some debris from the previous bowls and the raw chicken being dredged in those bowls. For all practical purposes, the contents of all 3 bowls is potentially contaminated.

Contamination, contamination, contamination - it's the thing they drilled into us when I got my food handler's card back in the 60's.  

Breadcrumbs are cheap - why would anyone want to roll those dice?

Feed those bread crumbs to the birds if your concerned about waste.

They need to eat too. /img/vbsmilies/smilies/wink.gif

And if you do decide to reuse them please don't invite me to dinner. /img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif

What would be your total loss for even a cup of breadcrumbs?

Having people Talking to Earl all night simply isn't worth the pennies you may save.

Ralph and the Porcelain Bus are known around these parts very well. /img/vbsmilies/smilies/thumb.gif

I don't see why you want me to have an unnecessary conversation with the big throne if I have a breaded chicken for lunch and make me some meatloaf for dinner where I used my leftover breadcrumbs from lunch .

Even if it only costs me a few pennies for the breadcrumbs There is no reason to waste a single penny.

If you guys have too much money  ,I never have any to though away
