      Holy Yum! I left out the onion (b/c I'm preggers) and used unsweetened almond milk instead of cream, and these were amazing. (Oh I also used only Panko, instead of regular bread crumbs plus Panko. I also didn't do the extra coating of Panko on the outside b/c I thought they had enough inside.) They had a "sweet" flavor even though no ingredients were sweet...just amazing. I made a little lemon-white wine-butter sauce for dipping and it added a nice extra citrus flavor. I highly recommend these--I'll be making them again!!

      Not bad at all. I love the panko bread crumbs, gives it a better texture. I add 1 Tlbs. Cayenne to give it a kick!
