Roll them in the bread crumbs coating them completely. take the 10 tablespoons of butter an clarify them in large skillet over a Low heat. Remove from heat and allow to sit for 3 minutes so the whey will settle out. Spoon off the clear butter, dump the whey, and return 6 tablespoons of the butter to the skillet.
