MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 1, 2009

This was a tasty dish. I don't know what went wrong though but there isn't enough liquid to bread crumbs and it left me with a bowl of dry crumbs. There was about twice as much stuffing as was needed, so I think if I try this again I will use half as many bread crumbs.
