Today’s Menu: Fish Sticks, Maryland Style Crab Cakes, and Steak Fries



For Breakfast this morning I made some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, Heated up some Meijer Diced Ham, fried an Egg Sunnyside Up, made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I made a bed of the Hashbrowns in a bow and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns then put the Sunnyside Up Egg on to top it off. My favorite Breakfast anymore! Not a bad day outside, 28 in the morning and 38 degrees for a high. After Breakfast I went to the local Kroger up the road for a couple of items and the stopped by McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom and Dad. After Lunch I went over to a friend of mine that was in town, he was staying with his brother. Good seeing him, we’ve been friends since our Freshmen year in High School. For Dinner tonight it’s Seafood and Potatoes. I prepared Fish Sticks, Maryland Style Crab Cakes, and Steak Fries.


For the Fish Sticks I used Gorton’s Smart and Crunchy Fish Sticks. Growing up I lived on Fish Sticks. While I was at Meijer the other day I picked up a package of the Gorton’s Smart and Crunchy Fish Sticks. These are coated with Panko Bread Crumbs and to prepare them I’ll be baking them. I first preheated the oven at 375 degrees. I then took a small baking sheet and lined it with foil. Sprayed the foil with Pam Cooking Spray and lined the Fish Sticks up on the sheet. Then baked them for 22 minutes, flipping them over after 11 minutes.



They came out piping hot, nice crunch from the Panko Bread Crumb Coating and nicely Seasoned. I really like all the Gorton’s Seafood Products. Easy to prepare and good quality Seafood. Served them with a side of McCormick Tarter Sauce.






Then for the Crab Cakes I used SeaPak Maryland Style Crab Cakes, first time using these. Another item I picked up at Meijer the other day. They come frozen to a box, individually vacuumed sealed.






To prepare these I preheated the oven to 425°f. Removed the frozen crab cakes from vacuum-pack and arranged on a baking sheet, flat side down. I then brushed them with melted Blue Bonnet Light Butter. Baked for 15 minutes on middle oven rack. Turned the Crab Cakes over and press gently to flatten them. Continued to bake for another 10 minutes. Let them cool for 3 minutes and ready to eat! I served these with an Aioli Sauce that came with the Crab Cakes, excellent Sauce! Very good Crab Cakes, lots of Crab Meat and great Seasoning. Another good item to have in the freezer.




For a side I baked some Ore Ida Steak Fries and had a side of Hunt’s Ketchup for dipping.Also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread. For Dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.
