    These were delicious and easy to make. The coating turned out nice and crisp. However, I could not taste any of the parmesan. I won't add the parmesan again since I can't taste it. My kids liked these dipped in ketchup, and I made a pan gravy to go with mine.

    These are wonderful!!! We actually used these boneless loin cutlets I had extras of from making the Balsamic Pork Scallopini (however you spell that). They would have fallen apart had we flattened them, probably not good cuts of meat. So we did the breading and then baked them like you would Shake n Bake......400 degrees for about 20-25 minutes. They were so tender and flavorful! Definitely a keeper!
