I had to make some "substitutions". I was out of onions & dry bread crumbs. I substituted fresh mushrooms (chopped finely) for the onions (my daughter wouldn't eat them anyway) & crushed SEASONED CROUTONS for the dry bread crumbs. Then I combined a can of cream of mushroom soup,1 cup of water, & a package of brown gravy to the pan for a gravy. Simmered the "steaks" in it for a few minutes. My daughter & husband LOVED it! Although, I would OMIT the final breading stage (unless using actual BREAD CRUMBS would make that huge of a difference.

Tried this recipe when, I found myself out of eggs. Came out great. Used mushrooms instead of peppers. And served bathed in a gravy I made by sauteing mushrooms until soft, adding a little flour to brown, then stirred in some chicken broth and cooked until thickened.

These were okay and easy but I agree with the other reviewer that skipping the final bread crumbs would make better "steaks" or add more oil to pan.
