This frugal recipe completely intrigued me. For some reason, we are either swimming in dry bread crumbs or completely out. Bread crumbs are one thing I never buy. However we were in luck, there was a package of whole wheat hamburger buns in the freezer, that had gotten squished beyond eating.
While they tasted good, it was difficult to separate the two halves, much less make a sandwich. Which lead to another dilemma, make bread crumbs or go and feed the Seagulls on the beach.....
Fortunately, my stomach won out and I threw the buns into the oven to dry out and toast up a bit, before buzzing them into crumbs. Then I made these muffins. And I must tell you, we are glad I did. They are really wonderful, proof that delicious food starts with the most basic of ingredients.
You could use graham cracker crumbs or other flavored cracker crumbs in place of the bread crumbs. Even cereal crumbs, for those times when the cereal got soft before the box was empty. That may not happen at your house, but sometimes it does here.....For a sweet version, you may want to increase the sugar to 1/4 cup.

adapted from: More with Less Cookbook
375 degree oven
1 c flour - we used whole wheat
2 T sugar
1/2 t salt
1 T baking powder
1 c milk
1 4 c oil or melted butter
1 c dry bread crumbs, we used whole wheat crumbs
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, salt and baking powder.

Make a "well" in the center of the mixture, add the egg, milk, melted butter and dry crumbs. Beat the egg into the milk and immediately combine all ingredients well.
Divide into 12 prepared muffin cups, bake 25 minutes or until done in your oven.

Note: These muffins are small in size, next time I will most likely drop the batter into 8 prepared muffin cups and adjust the baking time as needed.
