Tasty Shake and Bake Alternative Recipe

Tasty Shake and Bake Alternative Recipe

I looove making things from scratch. I love the idea of homesteading and being independent from society. I already make my own clothes through sewing and knitting. I cook all of our family’s food during the week, we have a huge garden, and I an taking up fishing. Hopefully when we decide to move, we can find a place where we can make our own energy, either through windmills or solar panels, or some other source of energy. It’s a passion of mine to be completely self-sufficient.

I am at the point of my life where I sometimes still need recipes, but can wing it and make recipes based on my experience. It’s an exciting time. I have invented a few dishes, like my Maple Syrup and Walnut Oatmeal recipe. And I am excited to post more about my original recipes. For now, I want to post on an already published recipe that I used in another recipe because it really, really worked.

This Shake and Bake Alternative recipe is the one I use for my Salmon Patties. When combined, it makes for the most delicious Salmon Patties. Super economical, juicy, tender, and flavourful. This dry bread crumb recipe is very versatile and can be used in many recipes, the sky is the limit. I hope you enjoy!
