Expert Tips

Panko is the Japanese word for "bread crumbs." Unlike traditional bread crumbs, panko is made from the soft, tender centers of bread instead of the crust, which gives a light and crunchy texture.

Progresso® panko bread crumbs will stick best if you first shake the food in flour, then dip into beaten egg before coating all sides with bread crumbs.
