Gives a whole new meaning to "finger food."

Charlie when you are breading your food, like a veal cutlet or a vegetable with flour, egg and breadcrumbs. You dip the food in the flour first, with just one hand, while you keep the other hand out of the way. Then you take it out of the flour and dip it in the egg, and repeat for the breadcrumbs. All the time using one hand to handle the food, while the other hand stays clean for frying.

That is how it is supposed to be done. But most people start out with that intention and end up using both hands. When they are done with the breading, they have as much egg and bread on both hands as there is on the food. It is an art to keep one hand clean. Not as easy as it sounds.

The way I learned to do it is to keep the left hand dry and use the right hand to dip into the egg, so it's the wet hand. So take a piece of food in your left hand (dry hand) and dredge it in the flour. Use your right hand (wet hand) to remove it from the flour and dip it into the egg. Use the same hand to remove it from the egg, letting excess drip off, and lay it on the bread/panko crumbs. Use your left/dry hand to turn it in the crumbs, pressing to adhere, and the same left/dry hand to place it on a rack on a sheet pan. Continue till all the food is coated.

Works for me

I'm not trying to argue, but I thought you took the food out of the dry with the dry hand, into the wet, turning with the wet, out with the wet and laying it onto the dry, using the dry to turn and onto plate or into oil as case may be. Obviously, you just pick it up by the edge of 1 end so you keep from getting fingers wet or crumby.

I don't think Charlie can use meat and egg together. I think eggs are considered dairy.

I think either way will work. The key is to is to keep one hand dry and not touch the egg with it at all. So it's not wet hand/clean hand, as Addie described it.

"... eggs are considered a separate entity once they have been laid and are considered to be pareve, or neutral, so that they can be eaten with either milk or meat."

I just watched 2 video's of breading chicken and .... something else, I forget now, and they used both hands! LOL. One was Japanese, the other Chinese. I couldn't believe how clean their hands were thru the whole process!

I personally have always done it as GG describes, which a lot of the celebrity chefs are showing how to do (actually me Gramma showed me many many years ago).

I have only one correction to GG's way.
1. 'Dry' hand dips food into flour. 'Dry' hand picks up food and slips it into egg/milk mixture but do not let your 'Dry' hand touch the mixture.
2. 'Wet' hand then turns food to coat thoroughly with egg/milk mixture (if necessary), lifts it up and lets it drip a bit then places it into bread/panko/crumb mixture.
3. Here I sometimes use a plate but more often use a piece of wax paper for the crumb mix. If using paper, left edges of paper and flip the crumbs onto the wet food. If a plate, use 'dry' hand to start flipping (you can use a spoon) the crumbs onto the food. Now you can flip it over and pat the crumbs on with your dry hand. Transfer to your rack. repeat with the rest... works for me!
