Homemade Shake and Bake Style Coating Mixture

I'm not a pork fan. Most of what I've had has been dry to the point where you can only swallow it if you have a mouthful of milk and even then it's difficult. However, I found that I can eat pork chops if I use Shake & Bake.

Then I found a recipe for homemade which you can adapt. Naturally, I Laura-fyed it.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 4 cups dry bread crumbs*
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon celery salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground basil
  • 1 teaspoon ground parsley
  • 1 teaspoon oregano

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl
  2. Pour into a jar
  3. When you're making pork chops, pour some of the ingredients into a baggie
  4. Get the pork wet with water and put into the baggie. Shake
  5. Put into pan
  6. Cook at 400 degrees for approximately 20 minutes but use a meat thermometer to make sure they've reached the appropriate temperature (145-160 degrees F)

* Note on bread crumbs. To cut carbs, find crumbs that are lowest in carbs. I do well with Publix Panko bread crumbs and the nutrition information is based on that. Note that there are gluten-free panko bread crumbs as well which I've used and taste great.
