Thrifty Thursdays

I am always looking for ways to save money for my family. One thing I do is try to make my own "convenience" foods. My family's favorite so far is my homemade shake and bake.
4 cups bread crumbs
4 cups flour
1 tbsp paprika
1 tbsp salt
1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp poultry seasoning
1/4 cup oil

Mix it all up and store it in an air tight container. (I use an old coffee can)
You can change the seasoning to suit your tastes. Sometimes I add Italian seasoning.
We use this for breaded chicken and pork chops, onion rings, and breaded zucchini. My husband loves it!
