"Yay! Thank you for these substitute recipes. I also tried the TOH Taco Seasoning, and it was delicious! I love having the basic ingredients on hand, and not using as much packaged stuff. :)"

"This was very easy. I used these bread crumbs on top of a casserole, to coat meat and in veggie burgers. Worked great every time!"
