Kitchen Tip Tuesday

Today is "Kitchen Tip Tuesday" over at Tammy's Recipes, and today I actually have a tip to share!

You know how you always have breadcrumbs and eggs and milk left over from dredging your chicken cutlets? I learned this trick from my mil: mix the eggs and breadcrumbs together and make little egg cakes! You just stir it all up, then spoon it into the very same skillet where you've been browning your cutlets.
Just fry a little on each side until 'dry' looking, then enjoy. They won't be pretty, but boy, they will be good! If you're like me, you'll have to stop yourself from eating them all so your family can have some, too. (How many you get depends on how big you make them, and how much egg/milk/breadcrumbs mixture you have left over.)

This is a really cool tip! I wonder if I can reform my non-egg eating child with these. Thank you too for the well-wishes on my blog.

Hmmmmm. That sounds really good. Bet you could put a little sugar in it and make cakes.

Yum! I love this idea! It makes me think of that story of the feeding of the five thousand--how Jesus sent the disciples out to gather up the leftovers, and they came back with 12 basketfuls (or is it "baskets full"?).

"Gather up the leftover fragments that nothing may be lost."
