This is by request...Not for anyone on a low fat diet! It's also great as an appetizer for a party, just use small plates and forks to serve it. I don't remember where I got it but I think it might have been on a butter box. (Land-O-Lakes???) My family requests it at every family occasion. I have to tell you that I don't measure everthing in this recipe anymore. Just by eye now and I love garlic so you might go easy on it if your not a huge fan! (FYI, I have butter on the stovetop, a bowl with breadcrumb mix next to it, and casserole dish next to it. Sort of like an assembly line!) Recipe can be halved or quartered!

This was sooo delicious! We halved the recipe for a family of 4. I also added a little lemon juice in the butter and a dash of cayenne in the breadcrumb mixture. Yummy!
