Happy Tuesday TKW Family! For today’s Tuesday’s Tip with The Kitchen Whisperer I’m going to be sharing with you my Best Breadcrumb Substitutes. Breadcrumbs are something that I make…when I remember however 9 times out of of 10 I never have them on hand. I don’t really use them that often however some recipes need them. So I had to become resourceful and went back to my childhood days of what Mom would use. And I’m telling you what folks, unless I make my own breadcrumbs, I’ll never buy store bought again!
♦ We were a Corn Flakes family growing up – it was simple, honest and, next to Wheaties, my all time favorite cereal. Mom took that cereal beyond the bowl and transformed it into cookies as well as a KILLER breading on chicken. All you need to do is put some in a plastic bag and smash it up until it’s fine though not a powder.
♦ Next we have Panko. I make my own by, are you ready for this? Using Chex cereal! It, hands down, makes the BEST crunchy breading on chicken. EVER!
♦ Pretzels – yep, crush up pretzels and use them to coat fish or to add in a turkey burger. That extra salt adds such a great flavor!
♦ Potato Chips – FYI… crushed up sour cream and onion chips with a butter drizzle is awesome with chicken fingers and honey mustard!
♦ Oats – grinding old fashioned oats is great for adding to meatloaf or coating foods.
♦ Cream of wheat – this is a secret trick to getting really moist meatloaf
What’s your best kitchen trick?
