most large chain grocery stores will usually stock a particular item if asked, try going to the customer service desk to request them to order some, they will usually get a shipment of it within a week.

So thi is my question. Why can't we make Panko bread crumbs? it can't be that hard and they are expensive for just a cup of bread crumbs $ 2.74 here.

The bags I get have much more than a cup in them, and if I remember correctly mine weren't more than 2 .00 for the bag.
Take a look at the site I just pposted I think they describe why panko crumbs are different, and a little on the process.

I don't know how well these work but I found this recipe for home made panko...


Homemade Panko Bread Crumbs

This recipe is from Bellaonline.com. I don't use them, much, but a lot of people do. Here is your chance to contron the ingredients in yours. Any white bread will do for making panko. An Asian chef I once worked with swore that the best homemade panko came from Wonder Bread! The yield will vary according to how large you make your crumbs, so I am guessing.
by Jim in Washington
23 min | 15 min prep

3 -4 Cups
  • 1 loaf white bread, or
  • if you don't have white bread, use soda crackers, like Saltines and oyster crackers or melba toast, instead. approx. 23 saltine crackers per cup
  1. Push chunks of white bread through the shredding disk of a food processor to make coarse crumbs.
  2. Spread the crumbs on a baking sheet and bake at 300 F degrees until the crumbs are dry but not toasted, about 6 to 8 minutes. Shake the sheet twice during baking. Be careful not to let the crumbs brown!
  3. Immediately remove bread crumbs from oven and allow them to cool.
  4. Once cooled, crumbs may be stored in the freezer, in a resealable plastic bag for as long as several months.

They are made with special equipment. I do not remember exactly, but I seem to remember that a large vertical metal plate is used. The metal plate is heated and the bread batter (or whatever they call it) is thrown onto the vertical heated plate where it cooks very quickly and then pops off creating the crumbs.

Hey that's pretty cool. I was thinking about this myself, but I was thinking to dry them out before pushing them through a FP.

well I don't know about you but wonder bread is more expensive where I live than just buying the crumbs and it would make the same amount as is in the bag....I just looked and each bag I buy has 4 cups in it.
