This rhubarb Betty dessert is a rhubarb version of the classic apple brown Betty.

This rhubarb Betty is made with bread crumbs, butter, and fresh rhubarb. This is a great way to use fresh spring rhubarb.

The recipe makes use of day-old fresh bread crumbs, another bonus. Whenever you have day-old bread, process it in your food processor to make crumbs and freeze them for other uses.
