Today’s Menu: Fried Crappie w/ Velveeta Rotini & Cheese, Roasted Red Potatoes, and Whole Grain Bread

I fixed another mess of the Crappie tonight! I never get tired of eating Crappie. I seasoned them with Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper. I then rolled each fillet in a Whole Wheat Flour and Italian Bread Crumb Mix. I lightly fried them in Extra Virgin Olive Oil about 3 minutes per side. As usual they fry up to a golden brown and absolutly delicious!

For sides I made some Roasted Red Potatoes, recipe is at the end of the post, Kraft Veveeta Whole Grain Rotini & Cheese, and Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. if your looking for a good and simple Potato recipe give this one a try! These would make an excellent Potato dish for breakfast also. For dessert later a slice of Pillsbury Nut Quick Bread topped with a scoop of Breyer’s Carb Smart Vanilla Ice Cream.
