Seasoned Bread Crumbs

"In the mid 1940's Albert Durkee and Michael C. Antil Sr., proprietors of Durkee's Bakery, Homer, N.Y. pursued an idea to bake heavily seasoned and spiced bread loaves and a drying machine and grater which took the baked loaves and grated them into a fine bread crumb - suitable for turkey stuffing and varius seasoning uses."
