    The larger the toothpicks the better for this! I use seasoned salt when I made this but white salt is fine!

      I have been on the hunt for what appears to be the reasonable way to prepare this for my husband. This is the ONLY recipe that sounds right! I will try this and get back to you. Thank You.

      This was a great from scratch version. I used pretty thick slices of bread and had to double the amount of coating. I also used some dijon mustard, per our taste. Great recipe!!!!!
