Southern Homestlye Cornflake Crumbs

6 posts in this topic

First of all I'm a terrible cook, no doubt about it. I just got these new corn flake things and I put a little McCormack garlic powder, oregano, salt and Kraft parmesan cheese in them to fry my chicken cutlet. Fried in Olive Oil. Needless to say it didn't taste too good. What am I missing? Is it Parsley??

One good thing though, these corn flakes don't seem to burn as easily as the old breadcrumbs did! For the lousy cooks in the world out there LOL

Any help would be appreciated. L

I have never used that brand, but I do pretty much the same thing with crushed up gluten free corn flakes. Try adding about 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper and a little paprika to the ingredients you are using. Also did you did it in egg? If you can have egg, dip the chicken in egg first, then roll in breadcrumb mixture. I also bake mine instead of frying (375 for 30-45 minutes, depending on how big your chicken pieces are); much less mess and healthier that way too ;)

Thanks for the tips! I've never been a big fan of pepper but maybe now I can start to expand my choices to accommodate my new situation. Paprika, unfortunately, really upsets my tummy (even though I loooove it). I was thinking maybe a little onion powder too?

I was too lazy for egg tonight so I used milk LOL. I wonder if egg would improve the taste? Also I definitely will bake sometimes. Especially in winter when having the oven on warms up my kitchen (and apartment). I like baked chicken alot.

What I made tonight was bland, then again I feel pretty ok right now. No heartburn, etc. so maybe bland suits me!

I just recently found and started using this product. On the directions, it states to combine 1 cup of Southern Home Style Corn Flake Crumbs with 2 tablespoons of melted butter or margarine. You must do this for the breading to get crunchy. It also says to moisten meat (chicken, pork or fish) in lightly beaten egg. Then roll in corn flake crumbs. It also states that this is an oven style breading which means that items are baked. I am not real sure if this item is intended to be deep fried. I used it for oven fried chicken and oven fried fish and both were terriffic...Even gluten eating significant other really liked it. Oh! I also used it to top stuffed bell peppers and it was great!

LOL OK, this proves again that I'm a terrible cook. It would seem to me if I took two tablespoons of melted butter and poured it into one cup of crumbs it would just get absorbed in one area of the crumbs. So let me ask, LOL, do you mean coat the chicken first and then sprinkle the butter over the chicken once it's breaded and ready to go into the oven? (terrible cook, and I mean that, I am just clueless in the kitchen). I saw the butter thing but figured for frying I might not need it so I skipped it.

And as to the frying, I think I saw on Amazon, or on someone's blog that they used these crumbs to bread and pan fry some chicken but maybe I misread. However, I will say this, it worked pretty good. It was golden brown and crispy. Very uniform all over. Really LOOKED nice... just tasted kind of awful!! These actually fry up more uniformly than regular bread crumbs ever did (at least for me)! My previous experience with breaded cutlets was either burnt or falling off the chicken into the pan. With these it looked like a professional cutlet! Just tasted like the first person booted off Top chef!

Thanks for the tips. I'll try to add some butter next time and mix it around and see how it turns out! I just need some good spices to make it worth my while!

Hey wait!! I just checked the package and it says "southern Homestyle Corn Flake Crumbs pick up less oil in frying. That means less calories and fat and no oily appearance"

So I guess they are good for frying!! I can attest to the fact that there was alot of oil left in the pan but the cutlets themselves were also still a bit oily. When you fry something there's no way around that I guess :)

Sorry it took so long for me to reply. I place the crumbs in a shallow pie dish and melt two tablespoons of butter and pour it sparingly over the crumbs. Then I take a fork and mash the crumbs in with the butter and it kind of moistens the crumbs some. I don't know if this is the correct way to do it, but it worked for me...

    • No I'm in the UK, from what I've been told that's a good thing for gluten labeling and standards compliance. What you and everyone else on here says makes me sense than what the doctors are saying (a confused message at best is what they're giving me, each one with a slightly different version of it). My referral letter is in the post so on theory appointment may not be that far away. I have a load of my favourite Quorn stuff (non-gluten-free version) in the freezer so perhaps using that up may be a good way to proceed for now. I'm out at the moment and torn whether to try chips from a café, in the strict gluten-free future would probably be a no-no but in current situation probably not so bad...
    • I also only really eat one meal a day and always after I get home. I never really feel hungrey. I call it 'Pavlov's dog in reverse'.  I think it comes from so many years of food making me sick. I have gotten to the point where I now at least can eat a sandwhich and some fruit during the day but it wasn't a quick process. When folks get like that it is very important to make sure that one meal has a good amount of both calories and nutrtion.  If your diet is how you describe you are starving yourself.  You need to get yourself used to eating again.  What helped me was carrying a baggie with some nuts and dry fruit with maybe even a handful of gluten free pretzels and always some chocolate baking chips. I just ate couple pieces when I thought of it throughout the day. A little bit of cheese and a couple safe crackers, a piece of fruit or a small tin or individual serving snack pack are also good. You need to get some nutrition during the day so you can feel up to cooking a simple full meal  for dinner. I hope your feeling better soon.
    • Ok, I can't seem to find my first lot of blood tests that were done for Celiac screening, they did include TTG I remember that much, and I am getting another copy of it but another test did come in today.  I don't know how different tests are done around the world and I don't get all the medical jargon but this is what it states, ******************************************************************************* HLA DR/DQ Genotyping for Coeliac Disease, Specimen type : EDTA blood Method : Detection of sequence-specific oligonucleotides (Gen-Probe). HLA-DR - 1, 13          DRB1 - 01, 13 HLA-DQ - 5,6        HLA-DQA1 - 5,6      HLA-DB1 - 05, 06 Interpretation : No genotype susceptibility for coeliac disease.  The DQ2 and DQ8 antigens associated with increased risk of coeliac disease were not identified in this patient.  In the absence of these antigens, coeliac disease is extremely unlikely.   *******************************************************************************   I have read the horror stories of blood tests and scope biopsies not be done right or flawed but here is what I do know as of now, At the moment the most non invasive test I can have done say negative.  I have double scopes (endoscopy and colonoscopy) booked for the 12th of October with results from biopsies expected a week or two after. Chances are they will show, a) signs of coeliac disease (even if the odds are low it can still happen), b) show signs of something else entirely and we will be busy dealing with the ramifications of that or c) it will show no signs of coeliac but I will still be suffering from gluten sensitivity (which is harder/impossible to measure clinically). My GP has told me that stress and anxiety can be a cause of all the symptoms I have been experiencing and suggests if the scopes show nothing that I may benefit from something to treat anxiety, i.e. antidepressants.  Not in a, "Oh we don't know what it is so have these," kind of way, he agrees with the thought that the scopes could indeed show coeliac, something else or even be negative. I did tell him that I could have a sensitivity and that even without benefit of clinical results, some people have gone on a gluten elimination diet for a period of time to see if they get any relief.  My question is this, if the scopes come up negative and I try eliminating gluten, how long would it be before I saw any results or improvements?  I have read enough here and elsewhere to know that everybody is different, some see results within days, some see results longer but are there any guidelines for how long a test like this should be undertaken for?  I have heard everything thing from two weeks to two months.  All of this is entirely moot at this point but I know that even if the results said clear, there would always be a little part of me that wonders if it could be a sensitivity that is the problem.  Any thoughts or advice greatly appreciated, and a thank you to all those who have taken the time to respond and offer advice and encouragement so far.
