Homemade Shake N Bake Mix

Inspired to find a Shake N Bake recipe you can easily make at home, I found the following concoction. When I looked at the side of a box of Shake N Bake I thought to myself, "are half these ingredients necessary?" And looks like the extra chemicals that are mixed into the seasoning really aren't required.

I added a bit of panko crumbs for a bit of crunch, but feel free to adjust to your taste.


3 cups dry bread crumbs
1 cup panko 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
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1/4 teaspoon minced onion
1 pinch dried basil leaves
1 pinch dried parsley
1 pinch dried oregano


In a large resealable plastic bag combine the crumbs, oil, salt, paprika, celery salt, pepper, garlic salt, minced garlic, minced onion, basil, parsley and oregano. Seal bag and shake all ingredients together.
