  1. I haven’t tried it but I think it would work great! I would mash them up and add them to the egg mixture before pouring it over the bread crumbs. If you try it, come back and let us know how it turns out! Thank you!

  2. Do you use brown sugar instead of white sugar or just add a little extra to the mixture? If so about how much? So excited to make this tonight for when my hubby gets off night shift.

  3. I would do half brown sugar and half white sugar, so 1/8 of a cup of each. I hope you enjoy it!
