You can use any store bought white gluten free bread. I like to use Trader Joe’s because their bread has a more dryer texture. I use their bread not only for breadcrumbs but also for baking off homemade croutons.

I use dried seasonings such as garlic powder, paprika, oregano and dried basil. You can also add onion powder, cayenne, black pepper or use your favorite spice blend.
