Shake-N-Bake Mix

Make Your Own Shake and Bake

Have you ever grabbed one of  those boxes of shake and bake type coating mixes for a quick and easy "non-fried" chicken, fish or porkchop dinner?  You can easily make your own, saving you money and letting you control the quality of the ingredients.

My recipe creates a super cripsy coating that will give you a crunch with every bite. It can be just a jumping off point for you, so feel free to add or subtract ingredients to your own preferences. My secret ingredient to boost nutrition and the crunch? Wheat Germ!

Shake-N- Bake Mix:
Makes approx. 4-5 cups of mix
Use within 2 months

  • 8 cups cornflakes (about a 12 oz.box) 
  • 1 cup wheat germ
  • 1/4 cup dried minced onions
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 teaspoons Italian Seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon Paprika
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 Tablespoons granulated garlic (or use 2 Teaspoons of garlic salt)

  • Crush cornflakes to approx. 3-4 cups of crumbs. (I pour the cereal in a plastic ziplock bag and use a rolling pin).
  • In a large bowl mix all ingredients together and stir until evenly mixed togehter.
  • Pour into a 5 cup air tight container or storage bag. Label with date.
  • Use within 2 months.
