Very tasty, though I might add garlic, onion or red pepper flakes to the bread crumbs next time. These are so quick to put together...I used plastic baggies for the flour and crumbs which worked better for me. They fried up super quick but my family ate them even quicker...thanks for sharing this great recipe.
