“Adapted from a recipe in Somerfields March 2006 leaflet. Healthy and easy. I sometimes substitute the breadcrumbs with 1/2 cup grated mature cheddar on top but haven't added it into the recipe as its completely a matter of personal taste. This can be prepared the day ahead and refridgerated then cooked in the oven when needed, although it will need slightly longer in the oven if doing this.”

Ingredients Nutrition
