Breaded Rolls

Sweet Hawaiian Rolls with a crunchy Walnut Panko crust.


1 package Hawaiian dinner rolls (9 total)

3/4 cup finely chopped walnuts

1 cup Panko bread crumbs

1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1 teaspoon salt

3 eggs

Vegetable oil for frying


Separate rolls.  In a medium bowl, combine walnuts, bread crumbs, cayenne and salt.  In a small bowl, beat eggs.

Heat about 1/2" oil in skillet until it passes the sizzle test.  Dip each roll in egg, then walnut mixture and fry until lightly browned, turning once (this will only take a few seconds).  Do only two rolls at a time, so they don't burn.  Remove to a paper-towel lined pan.  Serve warm.  Notes:  You can make them ahead of time and warm them in a 350 degreee F. oven for a few minutes.  Also, (as usual), I made too much breading mixture, so if you have a banana, coat it in the egg and the breading and fry that up.
