Homemade Shake & Bake Mixture

A few weeks ago, my husband requested Shake & Bake pork chops, something that he {and I} grew up eating.  Since I remembered it fondly, I set out to find a good copycat recipe.  I am just not a fan of buying premade mixes. these days.  This was one of my dad's specialties when I was young:)  We always had it with Rice-a-Roni on the side, which I had forgotten.  My dad reminded my of that when I told him that I had discovered this recipe.  It tastes just like I remember my dad's tasting, but it is homemade, so I know exactly what is in it.  

If you do make this, you should know that the recipe makes a HUGE amount.  I cut it in half to make 5 pork chops for my family.  I do think I actually could have only made 1/4 of the original recipe and that would have even been plenty.  

Homemade Shake & Bake Mixture

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
1/2 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.

  3. Can you make this ahead of time and store it?

  4. What is the baking time and temperature for pork chops? I am going to guess 350 for 25 minutes boneless, and 45minutes for bone in.
