My family loved this recipe, even my five year old. And it was easy to make. Didnt change a thing. - 26 Jul 2010


Good recipe. I tweaked it a bit, used walnuts instead of pecans and nutritional yeast instead of breadcrumbs, it was still great and I'll be making it again for sure. Would recommend marinating it for a few hours if possible. - 01 Mar 2016
