Southern Homestyle Corn Flake Crumbs

   Homestyle corn flake crumbs? Did you ever make them ‘home-style’? Pour corn flakes into a baggie and run the rolling pin over them which gave you multi-sized, crushed flakes ranging from large crumbs to powder?
   These gluten-free flakes from The SoyNut Butter Company are nicely uniform. I have used them occasionally as a substitute in cookies and crumb toppings when the pantry turned out to be bare of rolled oats that were gluten-free.

Southern Homestyle Corn Flake Crumbs

   Andrea and I were discussing crumb coatings one afternoon while at the fitness center and she shared with me her coating recipe for all manner of applications. This works for cutlets or patties of any type: chicken, pork, fish, bean patties, tofu, or whatever you have in mind. It bakes up nicely or sautés in a skillet. Andrea’s original recipe called for cracker crumbs but this works very well. We had it on baked tilapia one evening and it is savory and crunchy – a wonderful touch.

Andrea’s Oven Bake Recipe
1 pound of cutlets
1/4 cup gluten-free corn flake crumbs crumbs
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon dried basil, crushed
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil

Mix all of these ingredients together with a fork. Dip or roll your cutlets/patties to coat. Place on a baking sheet and bake at 400*F – 425*F or sauté in a skillet on the stove top.

   This product is available in Texas from H-E-B which carries most of the gluten-free items in my pantry. They can also be ordered online direct from The SoyNut Butter Company or through Amazon.

    KinnickKinnick has come out with a gluten-free Panko Style bread crumb. I haven’t tried it yet, but heard it was great. I use that same corn crumb all the time!
