Pan-Fried Breaded Trout

ONE SUMMER when my husband and I were enjoying our first "getaway" in years, we found ourselves stranded in our cabin cruiser with a dead battery. When hunger set in, my husband rigged up a fishing line, and soon there were two trout sizzling on the portable grill. We eventually made it home all right...and kept the recipe we'd devised. -Felicia Cummings, Raymond, Maine

    Yum!! Same thing though, couldn't find bacon flavoured crackers so we used goldfish crackers. New to Taste of Home and will definitely check out their site.

    This was great-the only problem we had was we couldn't find bacon crackers - they must not make them anymore so we used Ritz.
