My Homemade Breadcrumbs

So today I found half a package of light, whole wheat hot dogs buns that got hidden in the back of the fridge. They were kind of stale, but not moldy at all. Seemed like a waste to throw them out, so I decided to grind them up into breadcrumbs. 4 hot dog rolls gave me 3 cups of breadcrumbs, which are way less WW point-heavy than your standard breadcrumbs or panko. They are also a lot less dense (which may or may not have something to do with my crazy-ass rising meatloaf that I made today and used some in).

I'll bet you could even add maybe a tablespoon of grated parmesan cheese, some dried basil, oregano, and garlic powder and voila! Italian seasoned breadcrumbs.
