I made this tonight and my extremely picky 3 year old ate three helpings, so I'm posting it because it is solid gold! Use one slice of bread in a food processor to make about 3/4 cup of soft breadcrumbs.

I loved this recipe. It was easy to make and loved that there wasn't tons of sodium. I added peas and fresh parsley into the cream mixture. It turned out wonderfully. I will be making this again.
