4 Pieces stale bread
2 Garlic cloves, crushed
2 Bacon slices, Cooked till crispy
4 Sprigs Thyme, leaves picked of stalks
Place bread and bacon into a food processor and blitz until breadcrumbs. Bring a large frying pan to hot. Add breadcrumbs, garlic, thyme, a large pinch of salt and a large glug of olive oil (enough to lightly coat the crumbs). Cook stirring regularly until crumbs are golden brown and crispy. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Store in a sealed container.
Notes: Can be used as a topping for pasta, seafood and a coating for meats.
