This is a recipe that I made up, because I like my bread crumbs to be extra seasoned and I love parmesan cheese...this is delicious as a coating for oven-fried chicken...don't know about casseroles...P.S a cast iron skillet works best for this recipe..but any oven-proof container may be used

This was easy and fabulous and an excellent use of the leftover breads in my fridge (i.e. heels, an extra hot dog bun, etc). I did add dried basil to mine because I just can't go without it. Thanks so much.
