You might think - how special can bread crumbs get? Just take one whiff of these Italian bread crumbs and you'll never use the store-bought kind again! The fresh garlic and parsley and cheese... Oh man. I would imagine it is what heaven smells like. Obviously these are perfect in Italian Meatballs. It's all you need for breading chicken cutlets, eggplant, or zucchini too because there's PLENTY of flavor in the bread crumbs. You won't even need more seasoning. I would imagine it works beautifully for baked casserole dishes that need a crunchy topping as well. Make a big batch, store in the refrigerator, and you'll find plenty of uses for it!
Thank you Aunt Annette for sharing the recipe :)
