Baked not fried yet, crispy and crunchy and so delicious. Bake some up and enjoy the deliciousness!
Love easy basic recipes that take little time to prepare and have on the table when everyone is ready to sit down and enjoy. This simple and delicious recipe is just that. Great that these cutlets are baked instead of fried for a healthier option. I make these for large gatherings as well as dinner for the family on a busy weeknight. Bake some up soon, bet you will love them the way we do.
