People, a review means that You have actually TRIED it!!! Stop voting things down because they do not work for Your specific diet. This is excellent for My high protein/high fat/low carb lifestyle. It is wonderful in fat and protein content!!! So delicious and moist. I didn't have to change a thing!!!
My whole family loved this! No one missed a bread crumb coating at all.

Was very good. Had to turn the broiler on for the last couple of minutes to brown it up like the picture. I used shredded parmesan because that is what I had on hand. The pic looks like grated so maybe that is why it didn't brown as fast.

My husband and I both loved this recipe. We have tried several different versions but we both thought this was probably one of the best!

I made this last night, and I'm eating the leftovers right now. It is AMAZING! And I'm thrilled at the carb count. I sauteed some baby portabellas and zucchini to go with it, and it was wonderful.

Sounds delicious, but very high in fat (which of course gives lovely flavor!) For me, I would have to cut the cheese down to just a sprinkle for flavour and add more spices. Will try soon. thank you.

Nice but nothing special. Found it abit boring and lacking flavour. Family did enjoy it though.
