1 cup plain bread crumbs

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon parsley flakes

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon onion powder

1/4 teaspoon sugar

dash oregano

Combine all ingredients in a small bowl. Makes 1 cup.

This is excellent for baking (or frying) chix, fish, pork, etc.

Here's a fast easy dinner idea: roll some chicken in an egg, dip

into the bread crumbs, layer in the bottom of a 9x13 dish, pour a can

of chopped tomatoes over the top, bake 15 min at 350, remove from

oven, top with some mozarella and sprinkle with 1/2 tsp basil, return

to oven until cheese is melted. ( I generally use boneless skinless

chix breast for this, but if you use chix with bones, be sure to

adjust cooking time).
