    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


    I made this as written, and we enjoyed it. However, if I were to make it again, I would use a hot tangy English mustard (we could barely taste the Dijon), decrease the amount of honey (too sweet for my taste), and use more pecans and less breadrcrumbs (making it more crunchy and flavorsome). The '10 minute per inch of thickness' baking suggestion was absolutely spot-on. Thank you, Christine!  -  07 Jun 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
