Progresso Lemon Pepper Panko Review and Giveaway


I don’t know if you know this or not, but I’m love to cook and try out new cooking products and appliances, so when MyBlogSpark contacted me about doing a review and giveaway for the new Progresso Lemon Pepper Panko I just couldn’t pass up the chance to try something new and I immediately decided that I would try it out on some fresh caught fish!

A chef known for his emphasis on creating delicious dishes with fresh, premium ingredients, Chef Michael Chiarello uses panko as his go-to bread crumb for a crunch that won’t quit. An Emmy-award winning TV chef and cookbook author, Chef Chiarellois the tastemaker behind Bottega Napa Valley Restaurant, NapaStyle and Chiarello Family Vineyards, and appears on The Cooking Channel and Top Chef Masters only on Bravo.

Whether frying, baking or broiling, this culinary superstar adds a flavorful crunch to create simple, savory recipes. Made from the soft, tender centers of the bread, Progresso Lemon Pepper Panko combines the perfect crunch with effortless flavor to give any dish that extra punch. The large, flaky crumb has a coarser texture than traditional bread crumbs, delivering a lighter, crunchier coating or topping.

“Panko has been a major part of some of my best crunchy dishes for years,” says Chef Chiarello. “It’s exciting to bring those dishes home, where some of the best dining memories are made. To me that’s what cooking is all about – sharing meals with your friends and family, and the memories you get to keep for a lifetime.”

Chef Chiarello is helping cooks everywhere use Progresso’s panko to make flavorful, flawless recipes including:

Crispy Seafood Salad
Mama Chiarello’s Stuffed Eggplant
Turkey Scallopini and Squash Ravioli with Cranberry Brown Butter.

Visit the Progresso website for additional recipes, tips for cooking with panko, video and a coupon for $1 off any panko flavor.

Additionally, be sure to check out the Progresso’s Wine & Dine with Chef Michael Chiarello Sweepstakes. Now through December 31st, participants can enter for the chance to win a trip for two to Napa Valley to attend the Spring Bud Break Party, an annual dinner and wine tasting event taking place on May 7, 2011. In addition to two tickets to the party, the grand prize also includes roundtrip airfare and hotel accommodations.

Our Thoughts:

We were sent a prize pack of Progresso Lemon Pepper Panko (keep reading to find out how you can get your hands on your own Progresso prize pack) that included: One Box of Progresso Lemon Pepper Panko and an autographed Copy of Chef Chiarello´s New Cookbook Michael Chiarello´s Bottega!! My husband and I immediately decided to get to work on this review and we used the Progresso lemon Pepper Panko on some freshly caught fried catfish and I have to say that it was some of the best fish I had ever ate!!! Since receiving them for the first time we have since bought them on a weekly basis and we have used them on just about everything, meatloaf, fish, chicken and I love to sprinkle them on my salads vs. traditional croutons since I’m watching my weight!

We also received a copy of Chef Chiarello’s New Cookbook Michael Chiarello’s Bottega and I have to say that all the recipes in this cook book looks so delicious!!! I haven’t gotten to make any of the recipes yet but I do have several of them marked and after the busy holiday season I’m planning on cooking several of them for supper and dinner parties!

Bottom Line:

We are so happy that we have found Progresso Lemon Pepper Panko!!!! I can’t even think about going back to traditional cracker and bread crumbs ever again!!!! Of all the dishes we have used the Lemon Pepper Panko on we have not had one complaint what so ever, and we are really looking forward to trying the Lemon Pepper Panko a lot more in the future as well as checking out some of the delicious recipes in the Michael Chiarello’s Bottega cookbook!

Buy It:
To purchase the Progresso Lemon Pepper Panko visit your local grocery store and to pick up a copy of Michael Chiarello’s Bottega check out Amazon or your local book store!
