  • Incredible!
    Awesome recipe. Easy and fast. The cutlets are filling and have a nice texture. I topped them with a simple marinara and served with a tomato mozz salad - perfect! I could see using these cutlets as the basis for many other recipes (casseroles, on top of a salad, as part of a hearty brunch). - 10/8/12

  • Delicious! Didn't add the lemon zest, exchanges Bragg's liquid aminos for the soy sauce and used WW bread crumbs as well as WW flour and even added in some fresh green onion. I also only panfried them for a few minutes each side then baked them for about 20 min...yum! So many combinations!!!! - 4/27/12
