The Tomato Harvest is very plentiful this year.

I love the Panko breadcrumbs very much. My Polish Mom makes a variation of your recipe which I grew up loving as a kid

What type of breadcrumbs do you use?

What type of breadcrumbs do you recommend for this?  This is an interesting recipe I would like to try on my menu sometime.

Whole wheat breadcrumbs

Hi Ruth,

We used whole wheat breadcrumbs, but you can probably just use the plain white breadcrumbs.  There are Italian seasoned breadcrumbs in most stores which would also be good; we found the whole wheat breadcrumbs at Whole Foods.  But, if you are using this recipe for a restuarant, more people will probably enjoy the white breadcrumbs, unless you have health conscious customers.
