The best part about this recipe is it can be totally gluten and dairy-free. I always try to find recipes that I can alter and make 2 different versions of because my boys have sensitive tummies and I often make 2-3 different versions of our meals so everyone can eat the same thing but in a way that won’t make them feel sick or hurting the next day. Simple use dairy-free parmesan cheese, gluten-free panko bread crumbs and flour, and Earth’s Balance butter. Just as delicious for those of you who might need it gluten or dairy-free!

I hope you all enjoy the holidays and have an amazingly delicious Christmas dinner!
