Why not use crumbled garlic croutons instead of bread crumbs? Or would that be (impossible) too garlicky?



serialtrainer says:

you could substitute whatever you like 🙂 just make sure to adjust your calorie count. I think croûtons would be less calories, no?



Ron says:

I think so, plus you could cut back a little on the other seasonings (salt, etc.). Though I’d never cut back on the garlic!
