Oven Fry Mix for Pork

Making homemade alternatives for usually store bought items is becoming a trend at our house and I really suggest you do the same in at least some cases, because it’s quick and easy! My latest homemade alternative is an oven fry mix I used when baking pork chops a couple nights ago. I usually buy the box of Oven Fry at the grocery store, but this time decided to look for a recipe and make my own. Since I’m posting it on my blog, you know it was delicious! (Yes, I make my fair share of meals, snacks and desserts that don’t turn out quite as expected and therefore don’t make an appearance on my blog! 🙂 ) We actually decided we liked this homemade version much better than the store bought oven fry…not much of a surprise!

The recipe below will make enough for multiple meals! I cut the recipe in half and still have some in our pantry for next time. I used a heaping (because it spilled out quicker than I anticipated!) half cup of the mix for our four average sized pork chops. I haven’t tried this on chicken, but I assume it would be pretty good on that as well! Enjoy!!

Homemade Oven Fry Mix

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups bread crumbs
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 Tbsp salt (I only used 1/2 tbsp)
  • 1 Tbsp dried onion flakes (I didn’t have this and substituted onion powder)
  • 3 tsp paprika
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • ½ tsp cayenne pepper
  • ½ tsp dry parsley
  • ½ tsp dry basil
  • ½ tsp dry oregano

Instructions:

  1. Add all ingredients to a large mixing bowl and stir until evenly mixed and bread crumbs are no longer clumping together from the oil.
  2. Pour into a mason jar or other airtight container and store in the pantry for 1-2 months.

 

As always, thanks for reading!!
