If breadcrumbs are prepared use 3 ¼ cup per 50 servings.  If breadcrumbs have not been prepared, cut hamburger buns in half and toast on a low temperature oven (200 degrees F) until slightly golden brown and firm (see recipe MRS 1303 for detailed directions and pictures).
Cool before preparing crumbs.
Break bread into pieces and place in food processor or appropriate grinder. Process bread until desired crumb size is obtained.

Blend well and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently until slightly thickened or for about 10 to 15 minutes.


Pour 3 quarts of liquid mixture over potatoes in each pan. Stir to combine.
