    This sounds delicious! I have to ask though, what exactly are the peppers labeled as? Or better yet, got a picture? And, what about the bread crumbs? Plain/seasoned?

    Roasted peppers in the jar^^^^ You don't have to use this brand. Use whatever brand you like.

    As far as the bread crumbs, you can use either plain or seasoned. When I make this, I use seasoned.
