My parents and friends absolutely LOVED this dish! I don't see a need for eggs in this recipe, so next time I will use about 1/2 can of chicken broth rather than eggs. I think that will allow some liquid to moisten the bread crumbs on the bottom (as some of mine were still dry). Also, we cut grape tomatoes in half b/c we didn't have good big tomatoes and they tasted just fine.
