Grandma's Breaded Sole

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by horseplay

My Grandma always made this when I was a kid. You can eat it warm and fresh out of the pan, or I like to stick it in the fridge and then snack off the cold pieces for lunch.

Great recipe! Always looking for ways to include the kids in food preparation and this works great for all ages.Were a spicey group so we added fresh ground pepper and Garlic powder to the cracker mixture.
