Why bread with cornflakes?
Traditionally, breading food involves flour, eggs, and breadcrumbs. However, substituting breadcrumbs with cornflakes adds a distinctive twist, providing a unique flavour and crunchy texture that elevates the taste of the dish.
On top of that, cornflakes are a popular choice for breading due to their exceptional ability to retain their crunchiness when fried or baked, which makes them an excellent option for creating crispy outer layers on dishes while keeping the interior tender and juicy.
So, next time you’re looking to add a crunchy twist to your dishes, don’t hesitate to try using cornflakes as a breading – you’ll be amazed by the delicious results.

Why do you add the oil to the breaded mixture?
