    TOPPING: Heat a large skillet over medium high heat with 2 tablespoons butter. When the butter is melted, add 1 cup of Japanese style panko bread crumbs. Stir the bread crumbs constantly until they are coated with butter then they will start to turn a nice golden brown. Watch that they don't burn. Pour the bread crumbs evenly over the top of the cheese in the casserole, and bake in the oven until the casserole is heated through. Bake at 350 for 25 to 30 minutes.
