    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!

    • 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!:)
