Made these the other day and I think they are fantastic. Based on a recipe of William Granger. These are best served with you own fresh made Italian tomato sauce along with some basil leaves and rocket salad

Amazingly good dish! Made half of the recipe, just as specified, and wouldn't change a thing. I used just a thin sheen of olive oil to cook these and they came out crispy and delicious. I made a dipping sauce of tomato sauce, garlic and crushed red pepper flakes and really enjoyed these. Easy to make with restaurant-quality results - thanks for sharing the recipe!

I came across this recipe on the recommendation of another member, I'm PAT. I'm SO glad she share this great chef with us! I reduced this recipe by half, and it was fabulous! I can't wait to make them again! SO delicious! I did make a little tomato 'dipping' sauce, and WOW! SO glad I tried this and I'm glad Latchy took the time to share them!
