My 1st giveaway.... Progresso® Lemon Pepper Panko Breadcrumbs and Cookbook Giveaway



I am so excited to be hosting my first giveaway, thanks to the great folks at MyBlogSpark and General Mills for providing me and a lucky reader with this great prize pack (below) consisting of one package of Progresso® Lemon Pepper Panko and an autographed copy of Michael Chiarello's Bottega cookbook. It's a fantastic cookbook filled with dozens of dishes to help you start cooking healthy Italian food. Chef Chiarello loves to cook with panko and uses it in a lot of his recipes like this one for  Crab Cakes or  this one for Angry Shrimp. Both recipes a must try for us!!




Here are some of Chef Chiarello's Must Have Items:

Ten Must-Have Pantry Items:

For a taste of the good life at a moment’s notice, Chef Michael Chiarello keeps a few key ingredients on hand.


  • Salt-Gray Sea Salt or other sea salt
  • Canned Beans
  • Dijon Mustard
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Olives: brine cured or salt cured
  • Dry Pasta, Rice, and Polenta
  • Peperoncini- Dried Chili Flakes
  • Canned Tomatoes
  • Vinegars: balsamic, red-wine, and white wine
  • Bread Crumbs
And here is a link to Chef's  Panko Tips

We just used these super flavorful breadcrumbs to make these delicious Fish Tacos. They packed such a great punch of lemon flavor and a kick of heat from the pepper that I wish they had come out with these sooner. I have been using plain panko breadcrumbs for a while now for the extra crispiness they add, so I am super excited about the flavored versions. They make everything so crispy and crunchy I use them all the time for my Chicken Parmesan. They have a coarser texture which help make them so crispy, whether baking, frying or broiling. The Progresso Panko is available in Plain, Italian and the Lemon Pepper, can't wait to try the Italian!!



To enter to win, please go to the Progesso® website and than leave me a comment about what recipe you would like to try using the panko breadcrumbs. I'll select the winner at random after midnight on Monday, January 31st.
