Tips for success
Stale bread not bad bread is better. If you use fresh bread, it may take a little longer to get it crispy.
if you don't have an oven, a toaster would work.
if you don't have a blender or food processor, put well toasted bread in a freezer bag , seal and crush to crumbs with a rolling pin.
Half way through baking, rotate the pan.
If you intend using the crust of the bread, add some bread to the crusts too.
