The Goods: Panko Breadcrumbs

Doesn’t this mac & cheese look soooo good?  Wanna know why?

It’s the breadcrumbs!  Well, it’s a good recipe, too.  But I do have a new love: Panko breadcrumbs. I know I’m way behind the times on these puppies, but I finally picked up a box this week.  They were absolutely delish.  They crisped up so nicely and have great texture. I can’t wait to try them for other recipes, like my Chicken Parmesan. My mouth is watering already.


  1. Is it cool if I just eat the breadcrumbs straight out of the box with a spoon?

  2. just make sure you drizzle them in butter first!

    Panko is awesome in meatloaf too.

    I’ll have to try those!

  5. I like to mix garlic powder, salt and pepper with plain Greek yogurt, dip chicken breasts in the mixture and roll them in Panko breadcrumbs. Spray the tops with little bit of Pam and bake at 350 for about 25 minutes — great with sweet and sour sauce. Really simple, but we love it!

  6. Panko style breadcrumbs are the best;)- I felt like I was brought into the ‘cool cooking circle’ when first introduced to them. They’re often the ‘secret ingredient’…shhhhh…:)

    I LOVE panko breadcrubs. Use them to make the BEST pork tenderloin sandwiches. My husband’s family is from Iowa (home of pork & corn). When i use panko for the breading, the entire family told me it was the best pork tenderloin they have ever had. My little secret ingredient!

    Yes.Panko bread crumbs rock! I use them on my parm chick too! Oh, and I made up a cocunut chicken recipe (trying to imitate Rain forests) It was yummy!

    In Japanese, I think Panko literally means baby bread. Cute huh?

    Is that your mac & cheese you’re always raving about when I say I don’t like it? 🙂
