Breading your vegetables or hands

When you are breading, do you do the

One hand dry
The other hand wet method.

Or do you just jump in and get the job done! Worry about the messy hands later.

I am in the middle of breading three eggplants. Sorry I ever started. After that I have three pork chops that have been marinating in a soy sauce liquid since last night.

I do the wet hand - Dry hand technique when I bread anything and, being a southern girl, that's fairly often. We do love our breaded and deep fried food down here. If you aren't sure how to cook it, bread it and fry it, it can't be totally bad that way. :P

My intent is to do wet/dry hands but it doesn't always end that way.

For sushi, yes, wax on wax off.
Umm, 1 dry, 1 wet.

Everything else gets made right next to the sink, so rinsing fingers between stages isn't a problem.

I know the feeling well. Breading eggplant today, One large Italian one and two small Japanese one. It would be done by now, but I can't stand that long. So I unplug the fryer, sit for a while and back to work. There are times when I have enough breading on my hands to plop them into the fryer.

I start off with good intentions, too, but by the end, everything is messy, from my hands to half the kitchen.

Not that good of an idea. I hear the green thumbs taste like kale chips. The middle of the hand tastes like hearts of palm.

I don't do either. I use a pigtail turner that has freed me from the dreaded breading fingers. It does all the picking up and breading for me. I simply poke the turner into the targeted food, dip, dunk or whatever and slip it off the turner. Haven't had any breading issues since I began using my handy little piggy.
