No breadcrumbs at home? That’s how you make a crispy crust!

Must Try

Acrispy crust is the pinnacle of a dish. In addition to a delicious combination of flavors, you should feel a crunch, crunch or a certain crunch in your mouth. It seems to be one of the main reasons why we like chips so much: because of that crunch. So of course you want to add that to your dish as a foodie. Only: you don’t have breadcrumbs in the house. Help! Culy offers the solution.

6 x times a crispy crust

1. Panko

Panko is frequently visited on Culy, because we are a big fan of this Japanese variant of breadcrumbs at the editorial office. Finely airy and thin, giving you the perfect crust that is not overpowering and heavy. The popular Japanese dish tonkatsu – crispy pork – is also made with panko. But dishes don’t have to be Japanese to use panko, panko is also your best friend for quick fish fingers, a schnitzel or homemade chicken nuggets.

2. Rusk

Did you know that breadcrumbs are actually a waste product of the rusk industry? And that you can also make it very well yourself? Sand two rusks together and you will automatically get breadcrumbs. If only all things were that simple.

This is also the reason why you often see a rusk in recipes for grandma’s meatball. These were used instead of breadcrumbs. And also as a supplement to the meat, then it seemed more (“thrift with diligence…”).

3. Stale bread, more than just a crispy crust

Stale bread is also a perfect substitute for breadcrumbs. Toast the buns in a toaster and rub them – just like the rusks – together. You then get fine breadcrumbs that you can use very well to make a crispy crust for a casserole, stuffed pepper or tomato, but also as an essential part to make a vegetable burger stick together.

4. Cornflakes

Chicken with cornflakes is the ultimate tip to get the crispiest chicken legs. Toss your chicken in a beaten egg then top it with cornflakes that you grind (or crush between your fingers), deep-fry or oven-bake and you’re ready to gobble up that KFC-style chicken.

But cornflakes can be used in many more ways than just with chicken – or in breakfast. As a crispy crust on a cookie , brownie or muffin, but also on a French toast pie, everything is possible.

5. Popcorn

You may not have seen this one coming, but popcorn is a perfect substitute for breadcrumbs. You do have to look carefully at what you want to use popcorn with, but it really works perfectly as a crust for a casserole, a crisp with a ceviche , falafel or as the breading layer of a schnitzel. Then of course do not use sweet popcorn.

6. Chips or nachos for a crispy crust

We prefer to nibble on our favorite Netflix series, but have you managed to hold back? Then use the leftovers for a crispy crust. Chips or nachos with a taste are especially perfect, because they are already seasoned. This can be done with fish, chicken, but you can also do it with a baked brie or corn on the cob!
