- steamed, roasted or sauteed cauliflower, broccoli, asparagus or green beans
- any pasta dish
- plain white rice
- mashed potatoes
Melt 2tbsps butter in a pan (I use a non-stick skillet but any large pan will do the trick) over medium-low heat. Continue warming it until the butter has just begun to brown slightly (3-5 minutes after melting). While the butter is melting and browning, combine the following in a bowl:
- 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- several grinds of black pepper
Want to add more flavor to your toasted panko? Try adding any of the following to the crumbs before toasting:
- 1/4 tsp smoked paprika
- 1/2 tsp chili powder
- 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
- 1/4 tsp dried oregano, 1/4 tsp dried basil and 2 tbsps finely grated Parmesan cheese
Or, omit the salt, pepper and the garlic powder and instead add 1 tbsp of HomeBBQ.com's Garlic Lovers, made by Seminole County's very own BBQ super-champ Kevin Bevington (see his very very very long long long list of BBQ wins here!).
Savor it Seminole!
