  4. What’s Panko? Depending on what that is, the recipe appears gluten-free for my man. He’s a furry good cook, but Celiac disease runs in his fambly.

  5. Panko are Japanese breadcrumbs. To make this gluten-free I’d make some breadcrumbs from corn bread, use quinoa, ground rice or a mixture of nuts & grains.
