  1. Yum, I am going to mix some of this over today and keep for when I need it. Thanks, I hadn't thought of shake n bake for years.

    1. I hate buying the package stuff and this was pretty good.

  2. That looks so good know me, I'd much rather make my own mixes like this than buy store bought. Can't remember the last time I had Shake and Bake.


    1. The stuff in the package is SO expensive! Why spend the money when you can make it for a fraction of the cost.

  3. Looks yummy! I stopped buying shake and bake a long time ago but never quite found a coating of my own that came close. I can't wait to try this. Pinned.

    1. Hope this one works for you. We liked it.

  4. Pinned! Sounds amazing!! :)

    I would love for you to share this with my Facebook Group for recipes, crafts, tips, and tricks:

    Thanks for joining Cooking and Crafting with J & J!

  5. I want to try this...I had a recipe years ago that I used, but I don't know what I did with it, and have forgotten all about how yummy it was.

    1. Easy and what I especially like it doesn't contain all the artificial ingredients.

      Thanks for stopping by.

  6. Thank you for sharing your wonderful post at #OverTheMoon. I look forward to what you will share next week! Like someone in person today! We hope you’ll come back again next Sunday when we open our doors at 6:00 PM EST. Pinned and tweeted!

  7. I love this idea - Pinned! Thanks for sharing at the What's for Dinner link up!

  8. We can't get Shake and Bake here in the UK, Linda, so I was really excited to find your recipe. I also like that I know exactly what goes in it (Shake and Bake has some interesting additives and preservatives if I remember correctly!). Love the herbs and spices, it all sounds so tasty. I can't wait to give this recipe a try. Thank you for sharing it with us at Hearth and Soul.

    1. I was going to ask you if you could buy shake and bake in the UK. You do have a few of my favorites- After 8 mints. I can buy them here now but it was such a treat when I got them before any of the stores carried them. Would love to try Maltesers. They sound like something I would enjoy.

  9. Yummy! This was my favorite growing up. Thank you for sharing at Dishing it and Digging it link party.
