How To Make a Breadcrumb Topping

You and your child can make a breadcrumb topping together using these four simple steps.

  1. Set out two small bowls and measure out 1/4 cup of panko breadcrumbs and 1/2 cup of grated Parmesan cheese.
  2. In the bowl, mix the ingredients and add a pinch of salt for extra flavor.
  3. Drizzle 2 Tablespoons of  melted butter over the breadcrumb mixture. (A little bit of butter is what makes crumb toppings taste really good.)
  4. Use your fingers or a fork to mix the breadcrumbs and butter until the breadcrumbs form little clumps. Now you can add the topping to your dish.
