You saved me another trip to the grocery store! I used panko breadcrumbs & they turned out fabulous.

This recipe saved dinner! I didnt have any plain breadcrumbs, so I just put 22 ritz crackers and all of the spices in my food processor until crumbly. It turned out great! Thanks!

Very good recipe! I have been using this recipe since I first laid eyes on it. I prefer this combination of spices above all the others that I have previously tried. I always use these over the store bought Italian flavored bread crumbs. It's so much better! Five stars!
