A super easy to make and delish. Less healthy than fried and def more calories than baked.
I did not add salt to the milk, as the cheese and bread crumbs have salt.
I thought the 500 temp maybe too high but it was just right.
We served ours with rice and sauteed spinach with garlic.
We also know the Hilltop it was "The Place" back in the day.
Thanks for posting Maria Mac

Simple. I found it a little salty, but my husband said, "It's one of the top 5 recipes you've ever made." We miss Hilltop! Celebrated many special occasions there. Thanks for sharing this delicious recipe. Their lobster pie was phenomenal!

The Hilltop is an institution around here and we have gone there many times over the years. This is easy and delicious and my go-to haddock recipe from now on!!! It is a great base for any of the other sauces. My husband loves fried haddock but I prefer to bake it for obvious reasons. This is a cross between the two as the bread crumbs and butter crisp in the oven. I served with summer cole slaw and some tartar sauce.I f you are hesitant to cook fish, this is the recipe for you!!!
