"After reading another reviewer's question, I should add we use three slices of fresh bread, usually Nature's own white wheat."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 13, 2010

"I use 3 slices of whole wheat bread, coarsely crumbled. This works very well for me, so I suspect it was the original intended amount in the recipe. I think this is an elegant presentation for asparagus and a nice complement to the taste as well."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 17, 2010

"Would like to try this recipe, but bread quantity is vague . . . are these slices of bread cut or cubed? In directions it says bread crumbs . . . would it be 3 Tablespoons of bread crumbs. Please advise."
