Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

this was a little strange. the sliced egg was odd. chopped might have been better. left out altogether would probably be better. i put on extra bread crumbs, but it was too much.

Hi Crafter, I'm sorry you're having trouble, did you click the print button at the top of the recipe? If so can you tell me what is printing out for you? I need to know more in order to help. Or an alternative (to help you now) is to copy and paste the entire recipe into a Word doc and print directly from there. Thank you.

I can not print the first page how do I do that?
