Top Review by Prose

These were tasty but a little bit dry and crumbly. They were easy to throw together and made a nice accompaniment to whole wheat rotini with fresh pesto. I halved the recipe but still had a LOT leftover. The leftovers made good snacks. I replaced the bread crumbs with quick oats and used walnuts instead of pecans. I didn't have any bouillon on hand so I omitted it and doubled the soy sauce. I added some garlic powder and crushed red pepper for extra flavor. This is a good, versatile recipe. I think it just needs more wet ingredients.
