Cook's Notes

Unprocessed bran and wheat germ are rich in fiber and vitamins; flaxseed has heart-healthy omega-3s. Find them at health-food stores or in the cereal aisle of many supermarkets.

    Just made this for my husband and son and got my first complaints about a dish ever! Neither liked the breading. Personally, I found it too 'eggy' even after allowing the excess to drip off. I'll try this again because the cooking technique worked very well, but I'll probably use buttermilk and decrease the wheat germ and bran.

    I didn't have unprocessed bran, so I blended some raisin bran cereal (removed the raisins, of course!) and they turned out delicious!

    I didn't have unprocessed bran (and do not necessarily advocate eating it) so I substituted 1/2 c. ground sprouted whole wheat flour. I am sure unsprouted WW flour would work as well. I omitted flax also, and used white pepper so that the kids who think they don't like pepper couldn't see it. We all loved it.
