Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like my childhood We had this for special occasions growing up, only made with crushed Ritz/Townhouse crackers instead of Panko. As an adult, I don’t know why it was reserved for special times since it is cheap and easy to make, and is a wonderful entree that can stand on its own or be used to complement another dish.
