Really quick and easy to make I sprinkled grated cheese on top and it was delicious ! - 15 Jul 2012


I made this for myself and my partner tonight and it was lovely! Followed the recipe exactly (my partner has a large appetite lol) and we really enjoyed. Personally I found it was a tiny bit oily from the breadcrumb and a little too much garlic for my liking but that just me being picky. - 13 Nov 2015


I followed the recipe exactly. Next time I would use a lot less breadcrumbs and a slightly bigger dish because there was too much liquid and the breadcrumbs did not crisp up. None the less, the taste was great. - 26 Jul 2014
