MyBlogSpark Progresso Lemon Pepper Panko Giveaway!

by spiceaholic on December 19, 2010

Haven’t done a giveaway in a while!  I meant to do this one sooner, but I’ve been swamped catching up on work and blogs since our trip.

If you’re a fan of “oven-fried” foods, then no doubt you’ve used bread crumbs to get that texture and crunch of fried food.  My guess is you’ve also heard of panko bread crumbs, the Japanese-style bread crumbs that really give you that crispy, crunchy feeling.

Progresso has also teamed up with Chef Michael Chiarello, who you’ve seen on The Food Network, to promote its panko bread crumb line.  The Emmy-award winning chef, cookbook author, and restauranteur provides recipes and tips for how to use panko on the Progresso website.  Check it out!

Thanks to Progresso and MyBlogSpark, I was given a chance to try out Progresso’s new lemon-pepper panko bread crumbs.  I was also given an autographed copy of Michael Chiarello’s new cookbook Michael Chiarello’s Bottega: Bold Italian Flavors From the Heart of California’s Wine Country. As always, I have to disclose that the gift pack and info were given to me from MyBlogSpark and Progresso, that I received no other compensation, and that my opinions are mine only.

I’ve already used the panko crumbs to make oven-fried zucchini slices and I’ll be sure to check out the recipes on the Progresso website for some more ideas.

Now, I think you all know where this is going!

I love spinach so the Spinach Arancini is the recipe I would love to try in the future.

I didn’t know Progresso made panko! The tip I liked was to use it to coat veggies – Mmm I love veggie tempura. Also to use it in desserts in place of flour for cobblers and stuff.

I’d live to make the Crab Cakes Chiarello, the Saltimbocca of Zucchini, and Pasta Puttanesca!

Great giveaway! I’d love to try the tuscan white bean soup and the bruschetta with cannellini beans, sundried tomatoes and basil! 🙂

Oh my goodness, just saw his recipe for angry shrimp with white beans – I’ll definitely have to try that one.

I’ve been using panko bread crumbs for a couple years – usually adding my own seasoning – love the lemon pepper idea already done though! 😀
