Some people think bacon makes everything taste better - bacon in dessert is just one example - but I am going to make a case for breadcrumbs. If your kid isn't into vegetables or won't try something new, breadcrumbs might convince him otherwise.
I especially like Panko, Japanese style breadcrumbs, because of the crispy texture. Panko absorbs less oil than traditional breadcrumbs so you may find your dishes less greasy. Coat veggies such as sweet potatoes, sweet onions, or green beans and fry them in a heavy pan. Absorb the extra oil on paper towels and serve them hot - or warm for the little ones. It's a deliciously different way to serve the same old vegetables. Fish may be the best candidate for Panko breadcrumbs. Kellan will pretty much reject any fish, but he will try it if it's breaded and crisp. I even season the breadcrumbs with salt, pepper, and chopped parsley to add flavor. You don't even have to fry foods to use breadcrumbs. Dishes like baked macaroni and cheese or steamed asparagus can be healthy and low fat.Do you have any tasty tips for cooking with breadcrumbs?
