I called Shake and Bake and asked them how do you get the bottoms to not be soggy. They told me that they shouldn't be soggy at all. I have tried glass pans, cookie sheets, aluminum foil on glass, aluminum foil on cookie sheets, top rack, bottom rack, middle rack - you name it, I have tried it.
A friend of mine told me that she was watching a show on Food Network and the host - probably Rachael Ray since I googled it and looks like it was her - said to cook foods like baked "fried' chicken and whatnot on top of a cookie cooling rack. Hmmm. I have one of those.. I have more than one of those. We'll give it a try....
So out came the Shake and Bake for yet another attempt at crunchy goodness.
Was it as success? You tell me.... The picture above is the tops... Here are my... wet and soggy bottoms. Sigh. It was not crunchy. It was wet and goopy and all around unappetizing. I'm sorry Shake and Bake but I think we won't be partaking in your crumby goodness anymore.
