I found myself in a real mess yesterday when I needed Italian bread crumbs but I realized I didn’t have any. I decided I better get to work looking for a copycat recipe considering all the grocery stores were closed.
- 1 cup plain bread crumbs
- 1 T. dried, grated Parmesan cheese
- 1/2 tsp. salt (you can decrease or omit this, since Progresso’s salt content is high)
- 1/2 tsp. parsley flakes
- 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp. onion powder
- 1/4 tsp. sugar
- Dash of oregano
- Measure out all the ingredients into a mixing bowl. Stir and mix until all the ingredients are completely blended into a consistent mixture.
- The bread crumb mixture is ready to be used at this point, just as you would use store-bought crumbs. Or, transfer the batch to an airtight container and store in a cool, dry place until you need to use it.
- Makes 1 cup
