Recipe Notes

Easy Bread Crumb Substitutions:
Forgot to buy bread crumbs? No problem. Crushed cracker crumbs make a simple substitute. Or, make your own bread crumbs. Just cut stale white bread into cubes and bake at 325°F for 15 to 20 min. or until dry and golden brown. Let cool, then process in a food processor to fine crumbs.

Special Extra:
Sprinkle with additional chopped fresh parsley before serving
