I'm not keen on tomatoes, so I used large flat mushrooms instead. I kept the breadcrumb mix the same and cooked the mushrooms for the length of time given. It worked really well and my guests loved them!

very tasty and easy to make. I subsituted the thyme for tarragon and it was just so tasty. Will definately be making this again.

These are fabulous, I've made them several times as they are so easy - they are a lovely side dish or great on a buffet table.
