"Because I'm watching my weight, I've used this recipe for years," writes Janet Bumb of Beallsville, Maryland. "Served with a flavorful tomato sauce, these cutlets taste so good that my son, who is thin and doesn't need to worry about his weight, requests them for his birthday dinner!"

"I really, REALLY enjoyed this recipe! So simple but an amazing flavor! I actually used two leeks that I had on hand in place of the onion - basically bulked up the veggie end of this. I also pan seared the cutlets in a cast iron skillet. Will definitely be making this again! Thanks Janet! :)"
