Fried Bread Crumb Topping for Vegetables
7 mins (prep 2, cooking 5)
2 ingredients
4-6 servings
This topping always reminds me of holidays at Grandma's. The only vegetable I ate as a kid was corn, but I hear Grandma used this topping on most of her vegetables. It really makes veggies just a little more special. I tend to only make it on holidays myself. I've never known anyone who's heard of bread crumb topping which is why I'm posting it. My aunt found the recipe in a Scottish cookbook and was even served vegetables with crumbs while on vacation in Scotland. Grandma was of German descent so I don't know how or why she started making vegetables this way. :) Homemade dried bread crumbs are the best, but I've used plain packaged kinds also.
