If you take into consideration the cost of the store-bought version of Shake n Bake versus the inexpensive ingredients that it actually contains, it only makes CENTS to make your own. I know, I’m punny, right? :shame:

I remember mom coating meat and potatoes with seasoning blends when I was a kid and then baking them and the crispy coating on the outside crunching just right with the tender meat on the inside. It was one of my favorites. It wasn’t until I got out on my own that I realized how silly it was to spend a couple bucks for 30¢ worth of ingredients!

You’ll Need:
1 c. bread crumbs
1/2 c. flour
1/2 c. finely crushed cornflakes
4-6 tsp. dried minced onion
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. sage

Measure all ingredients into a ziploc bag, shake well to blend seasonings.
