I know, I know--this sounds really weird. This is one of those "I don't feel much like cooking" dishes that is easy to throw together on a busy night. This tastes a lot better than it sounds and is a real family pleaser. It is also a good potluck meal--and believe me, everyone is always shocked when they ask for the recipe and discover I used fish sticks. Another great find from Quick Cooking magazine.

- 4 eggs

- Pour egg mixture into a greased 9x13-inch casserole.

I have to admit that I'm not fond of fish sticks. I was looking for a recipe that would make them palatable to me. This did the trick. I used 1 tsp. dried dill, and was glad to have dried onions in the house. A dinner with no chopping!!!
THis was a good quick meal. It was a little bland for our tastes, so I added a little tarter sauce. I will try to add more dill next time! Thanks!
Not bad... needs a little more flavor though. could barely taste the dill or the cheese or onions. Next time i'm probably going to triple those ingredients (1 1/2 the cheese). Might try the tartar sauce on the leftovers tomorrow.
