  1. Step 3 reminds me of a schnitzel. Its a great dish but won’t the breadcrumbs soak a lot of oil. I am guessing that adds to the crunch having said so i think i will try these without the breadcrumbs to reduce the oil. But i am tempted to carmelize the onions. Gosh! i end up sounding like a dumbo, reducing the oil from the bread crumbs but adding it to carmelize the onions. Great photos!

    1. Wow! Adding caramelized onions sounds so good! Yes, the breadcrumbs get an amazing crunch after being sauteed in oil. I personally like it, but your plan Andy, sounds pretty good too!:)
