  • These are very good! I actually cut the carbs by doubling the recipe but still using only 1 cup whole wheat bread crumbs. Baked for 20 mins and they are tender and moist, holding together just fine. We had them for dinner with stir fried bok choy and yellow peppers with red chile flakes. Sweet, sour and spicy.
