Top Review by OzMan

These came out wonderful! I used dried bread crumbs as I found I was out of bread when I started but it did not hinder the outcome whatsoever! These were easy, quick and very good. Everyone loved them, and I even used store bought salsa! I will be looking for a salsa recipe here to add to this next time.....and there WILL be a next time! Thanks. :)
