Bread Crumb Safety

Okay, this might be an odd question. I made a dish that required I dredge in eggs and then roll in panko bread crumbs. I ended up with a lot of breadcrumbs left over and ended up throwing them away because they'd been touched by raw egg. Was this necessary and how do I not waste so much next time?

When ever I use a crumb mixture, I only use just enough to coat one piece of meat at a time to eliminate any waste. You can always add a little more to the bowl/bag as needed.

That's what I do, too.

I wouldn't reuse crumbs that have egg on them.

I stick the crumbs in a baggie in the freezer. If you shake the plate or whatever into the baggie then the crumbs that are mostly untouched will fall in and the rest stick to the plate.

Isn't that sort of cannibalism?

I like the bird idea but I don't see many around here lately. Heck, we haven't even seen a squirrel in weeks. We did have two deer in the backyard this morning but I don't know that they'd like bread crumbs. LOL

Yes, you needed to throw those crumbs away. I just pour them into a pie plate and add as needed.

Very low chance of a problem, but why take any chance over a few cents worth of crumbs.

Only one is 10,000 eggs is estimated have Salmonella. In order to grow sufficiently to make you ill, the organism needs sufficient moisture. Most of what ever small amount of moisture exists would soon be taken up by the crumbs, and the organism, if present would soon die.

Though probably safe, I would prefer not to eat dried, clotted egg on my next chicken cutlet, so I would toss them.

Of course, if you use pasteurized in the shell eggs, then the chance is very, very low.
