Gonna share one of my top secret recipes.  One thing I make that my kids absolutely love!

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

I use a huge family pack of steak, but if you don’t have as many people in your house as I do, you won’t need that much.

Cut your steak into strips.

Open up a box of Shake ‘N Bake. (I use the parmesan crusted flavor a lot though sometimes I use Hot & Spicy.)


Now again, since I’m using a lot of meat, I use both bags in the box.  I split the steak in half between both bags.

Now is the fun part.

Grab one of the bags and start to dance.  Shaaaaaaake (you must start shaking the bag upside down as you do this part) and Baaaaaaaaake (flip the bag the other way and shake it that way.  Repeat that about 10 times or for as long as it amuses your children.

I use tongs to get them out because I’ve noticed if I empty the whole bag into the pan, somehow with the unneeded Shake ‘N Bake, it gets soggy on the bottom.  So I take them out individually lining them up in the pan.

Now, we usually have scalloped potatoes (ala Betty Crocker because if I’m going to make homemade scalloped potatoes, it’s going to be the whole meal).  I make those.  Then I put them in the oven at the same time.  Cook it for 30 minutes.  Then I get out the crescent rolls, put them on a pan and throw them in for the last 10 – 12 minutes.  And voila – supper –


One of the only ways my kids will eat steak is if it’s breaded with something and disguised as chicken strips.

And you thought Shake ‘N Bake was just for chicken!

I was just over at the Shake ‘N Bake website and they have a coupon you can print off for $.75 off.

Then look for it at your local grocery store.  I find it down our baking aisle.


I was sent a sample of Shake ‘N Bake for this review, but that in no way influenced my opinion as we’ve been doing the Shake ‘N Bake dance since I was little.  We love Shake ‘N Bake!

    Oh my goodness, I love the Shake ‘N Bake Dance! I grew up with a slightly different one, the Puppy Chow/People Chow dance. It’s essentially the same dance, just different stuff in the bag. 🙂

    Thanks for being my guest blogger today, your post was fantastic!!!

  • I was heading to the store when I read this, so I grabbed a box of ranch and herb crusted to try. Was going to make it tonight but forgot there was a benefit for a young lady at the adjoining high school that got paralized in a snowboarding accident. So I will be making it tomorrow. Can’t wait. Thanks, I need new recipes.
