This was very easy and the corn flake crumbs made it very delicious. My husband and kids loved it! I will make it again and again.

I used the bran flakes too. Yummy! Next time, I may not add the cayenne (or just a little less). It was good but I'd prefer less of a kick.

I use bran flakes to add some extra fiber.
