Yummy that was good. Added some chopped onions & celery. Also instead of cracker meal used italian bread crumbs. May add some salt & pepper next time.

I got a kick out of seeing a recipe that I also grew up with and I still make them. Little MsMartha commented that they were a little dry. I usually add a couple tablespoons of milk to mine and most of the time I do not drain the juice (only pick out the bones). Try one or both of these to help with the dryness.
