We all know that finding time to cook dinner can be challenging. Well Kraft is making this a little easier on all of us. It’s not your ordinary shake-n-bake, there is some flavoring to this mix. A blend of Kraft cheeses, and seasoned bread crumbs brings your chicken, fish or pork to life. It only took us 5 minutes to prep the meat before we put it in the oven!

  1. Thaw your meat.
  2. Open the Kraft Fresh Take package and mix the seasonings together.
  3. Coat your meat. (Kids loved doing this part) 
  4. Bake your meat in the oven on 375 degrees.
We coated some tilapia filet’s in the Italian Parmesan mix and added a mix green salad with a raspberry vinaigrette and lunch was ready in under 20 minutes.
