Delicious Parmesan Cheese Italian Bread Crumbs

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by janieb

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
