I normally cook about 4-5 times per week, and most of the dinners are OK, but quickly forgotten. My family has talked about this one for weeks.

We liked this! I threw in about 4T of green onions and 1/8 t. granulated garlic. used extra parsley, too. i thought it was a little too heavy on the worcestershire, tho, so will cut back on that next time. Used some prepared remoulade sauce on it that really gave it a punch. a keeper for certain! UPDATE: Did this one again, tweaking and experimenting as i went. We like it better every time we have it! This time i added 3 T minced red onion, subsituted oat bran for the 2T wheat germ, used a 50/50 mix of Italian bread crumbs and Wondra flour to coat it.Then i sauted it 5 min on ea side in a mix of butter and olive oil-not very much. Used bottled remoulade sauce instead of salsa--this is most definitely staying on the menu rotations! Thanks, Dorothy!

This was good Dorothy but it just didn't go over the top for me!!? I found them a bit "loose". I think next time I'll used breadcrumbs and less Worcestershire. Course I upped the Tabasco too. But it sure is easy to make (which I always like) and I will give them a go again.
