Shake-Bake Coating Mix

When I first started using this recipe in the 1960's it was because it was less expensive than the purchased mix and tasted good. The family loved food prepared with this mix and I used it often. Now I still use it - not for the economy - but because I prefer not to use commercial mixes with ingredients that are used as preservatives rather than nutrients.
The original recipe used shortening. These days we are avoiding trans-fats so trans-fat free oil would be a better choice.
