In any of the recipes you can substitute oat bran, wheat bran or crushed all-bran cereals as part of or fully replacing the unhealthy white bread crumbs.
Even more thrifty is to use the natural crumbs you'll find on the bottom of your non-sugar cereal bags. Regardless of what you mix together from the cereals, they should be much higher fiber than white bread crumbs unless you have very unhealthy cereals in your cupboards.
If you're die hard on bread crumbs; it's easy to make your own out of whole grain, high fiber breads. Just dry out in oven on super low setting and crush in a bag until you have the desired crumbs.
You don't have to change anything else in the recipes....same seasonings, etc. If you're going for even healthier foods; you can substitute rice bran oil for any of the "fry" oils. It's pretty high nutrition and tolerates very high temps. You won't notice any difference in taste except that the rice oil tastes much lighter to me than canola or corn oils.
You'll get an even crunchier oven fry out of it plus better nutrition! (08/26/2008)
