this was delish! Crunchy and easy to make. My family made yummy noises all through the meal.
I used the entire egg instead of just egg whites, I wanted the the flavor. Give it a try!
Really really good and easy to make.
Absolutely delicious! I made with full fat cottage cheese & 2 eggs instead of egg whites and used 1 & 3/4 tsp of Italian seasoning. Maybe less salt next time but it is a great dish and is delicious with homemade Italian pasta sauce on top! Thank you Cabot! This one is a keeper!
