Buttered Breadcrumbs

READY IN: 6mins
Recipe by Debbwl

Buttered breadcrumbs can be used to top casseroles and au gratin dishes or as garnish for vegetables. For extra rich buttered breadcrumbs, double the amount of butter. This uses Soft Breadcrumbs which I posted separately. Variations: Add to taste grated parmesan cheese, minced parsley, minced toasted walnuts, toasted almonds or toasted sesame seeds.

I served these over cauliflower the other night. It's a tasty and quick dress-up, not to mention economical. Made for Zaar Stars Tag.
