I found this Good housekeeping recipe on this morning, it seems like it would be a good dish so I am posting it here for safekeeping until I get to try it.

I made this and it was easy, I think it needs a little more pizazz, but we liked the fact that it had healthy stuff in it. I made some bread crumbs from whole wheat bread and used this and substituted egg beaters for the egg. Thanks for posting.
