Flipped Italian-style Master Mix Breadcrumbs

I'm back from our vacation at the Lake of the Ozarks.  What a treat to relax and be with my family!

I'm really excited to give you my Flipped Italian-style Breadcrumb recipe.  The recipe is extremely easy to make and will surprise you with its incredibly bold Italian flavor!  They FREEZE well so they're ready at a moments notice.

Instead of choosing an Italian bread, I went with a bread that made the mixture healthier.  As you can see in the picture, the freshly grated Parmesan Cheese and fresh Basil elevate the breadcrumbs to an entirely different level. Wow!

Go ahead and make a batch.  You will see these featured in my next recipe!

  • 2 cloves of Garlic, minced

  2. Wow! This IS easy to make! And it tasted delicious! The basil was a nice touch... and I am a Parmesan cheese fanatic, so that was a great thing to have in the recipe.
