Panko Bread Crumbs

panko bread crumbs ohsweetbasil.com

Since so many seem to still be unaware of Panko bread crumbs I thought it was absolutely necessary that we talk about Panko, what it is, and why I adore it.

Panko is a Japanese style bread crumb that is made with only the white part of the bread, unlike regular bread crumbs that use the crust too. These bread crumbs are a coarser crumb than the other and are great for fried foods, but baking with them is fantastic too.
Panko absorbs less oil and creates a crunchier breading and stays crunchy longer.

Love, love Panko. I RARELY use any other bread crumb.

Here are a few recipes to use with panko bread crumbs…

  • We love Panko too! I don't remember where I first found them but they are now a “staple” in our house. I now buy them at Costco or BJs Warehouse in the OMG size container.

    I do buy “regular” bread crumbs from time to time, but my go to is Panko – I even used them the other night to make my meatloaf.

  • I just used Panko a couple nights ago on some baked avocado fries! That was my first time trying them, besides what the restaurants use for tempura.
