Popcorn or Pretzels - The New Panko?
I know we've had flavored pretzels, pretzel rolls, and popcorn in all shapes and tastes. Given all the flavors and textures this provides, I could see pretzels or popcorn being used as breading, stuffing or other fillers much more. I doubt I'm re-inventing the wheel here, but I smell a trend. Nobody talked about Panko 5 years ago the way they do now.
Anyone want to be on the future "I told you so" bandwagon? Or share a pretzel popcorn experience/recipe?
Example: I pan-fried chicken strips with crushed pretzel breading and served them with honey mustard. Yum.
