Can I use fine polenta instead?

We haven't any bread to make fresh either.

I use polenta and parmesan for snitzels.. So probably ;)

Moominsarehippos Sat 05-Jan-13 17:58:00

Parmesan eh? Tell me more...

Blitz cornflakes or ritz crackers in the food processor?

What about crushed cornflakes? We use those to make chicken nuggets.

Is it to coat the outside? How about some crushed up cornflakes? plain ones, mind I don't think the honey-nut type would do the trick...

Moominsarehippos Sat 05-Jan-13 18:01:17

Nope, none of them either. We have porridge...

LadyPeterWimsey Sat 05-Jan-13 18:09:43

Any kind of crackers? Anything bread-y at all? <desperate>

Pita bread, muffins, errr oatcakes? Lentils, rice, soyaaaaa? Bugger.

Crisps? Hmmmmmmm. I think we may be in 'mad inventor' territory here.

LadyPeterWimsey Sat 05-Jan-13 18:20:02

Pita bread or muffins (assume English muffins) would make breadcrumbs. And actually crisps would probably work too...

LadyPeterWimsey Sat 05-Jan-13 18:20:55

But I'm sure polenta would be fine, in any case.

Crisps sound nice, pitta bread crumbled up would work too

I've made them without coating them at all #trailblazer.

Any sort to savoury biscuit? Just egg and flour?

I always use polenta.

FoofFighter Sat 05-Jan-13 18:24:34

I use smash mash stuff mixed with some seasoning.
