I did not buy a box of Shake n’ Bake. I made my own Shake n’ Bake like a rock star! A healthy Shake n’ Bake at that too (with whole wheat flour).
Not too many lessons to learn here except perhaps how to give something more flavor. There were plenty of spices in the recipe such as cayenne pepper, ground thyme (“ground” being the operative word), garlic powder and onion powder. Yet it needed something. I just don’t know what the “something” would be.
Lesson Learned: Google how to “flavor” something up.
Positive Lesson Learned: I can make some many things at home with ingredients that I already have rather than buying the convenience version of that item. ie: Shake n’ Bake, waffle mix, etc.
