Cornflake Crappie
Sent in by Terry Boyne

My mom came up with this recipe out of necessity one night while my family and I were out camping. My dad, brothers and I came in with a big batch of crappie and Mom realized she had no cornmeal to use for the batter. She did have a box of cornflakes though and so she improvised the following recipe which proved to be so tasty we have since preferred it to most others.


    Crappie or any other panfish fillets.

    Equal parts of flour and finely crushed cornflakes enough to accommodate the amount of fish you have.

    2 cups milk

    1 egg

    Salt and Pepper to taste


In a cake pan, whisk egg into milk and add fillets to soak.

Mix flour, crushed cornflakes, salt and pepper in a large baggie.

Remove soaked fillets from the milk bath a few at a time, place in baggie and shake till coated.

Fry fillets until golden brown in a medium to medium high heat skillet with enough oil to cover them.

Remove to drain on paper towels.

Stand back so you don't get run over by the crowd!

Enjoy, ~ TerryB
