Recipe Notes

  • Store leftovers in an hermetic field inside the fridge for up to two days. Reheat in a lightly oiled skillet over medium warmth.
  • If you’d like to make the recipe gluten loose, use gluten-free bread crumbs. You may also switch ground gluten-unfastened rolled oats. (I have not attempted both, but I suppose each might work properly.)
