A how to on breadcrumbs?

I made some pesto in my food processer today and after I scraped the bowl as clean as I could, I threw in some bread to make pesto breadcrumbs. Now what? Do I put them in the oven? And any suggestions on using my pesto crumbs would be appreciated also. Thanks!

Wow - sounds delicious!!! I never would have thought of doing that - thanks for the tip.

I probably would toast them a little in the oven, then cool, & store in an airtight container in the freezer to keep the oils from turning rancid.

As far as use - the sky is the limit. I'd be inclined to add them to sauteed greens like spinach & swiss chard. Also to top baked pasta dishes.

This might sound a little weird but I sometimes put just a little bit of olive oil in a frying pan and fry them. The oven works good too though. I don't know why I never thought of pesto before for croutons, what a great idea!
