The reviews are in

As someone who isn’t a huge courgette fan, these were to my taste buds, however, they did taste great. Plus, they gave me a few ideas of other vegetables ‘fries’ which can be done in the same way.

Tip: all costings for breadcrumb meals are based on using pre-purchased breadcrumbs it would be a lot cheaper if you used a blitzer and made your own breadcrumbs.
