Dressed Up Veggies

I found this tip thumbing through my Betty Crocker Recipe Book--which has a basic recipe for just about everything. I usually serve steamed veggies as a side for dinner, but I always have to force the kids to eat them. I knew we'd found something good when Jenna and Ethan asked for seconds, and we didn't have to make Sean sit there for an extra 15 minutes to finish.

2 C steamed veggies
1 slice whole wheat bread (about 1/2 C crumbs)
1/4 t italian seasoning
1/4 t garlic salt

I made up the crumbs in my coffee grinder and added the seasonings. Put in a small oven safe dish and bake at 375F for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionaly until crunchy. Sprinkle the crumbs over the steamed veggies just before serving.
