My Grandma always made this when I was a kid. You can eat it warm and fresh out of the pan, or I like to stick it in the fridge and then snack off the cold pieces for lunch.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut the sole up into pieces about 2 inches wide.
  2. In a small bowl, beat the egg and cornstarch together.
  3. On a plate, break up the crackers and corn flakes into crumbs.
  4. My grandma liked to use her potato masher to do this.
  5. I just crumble them up in my hands.
  6. Make sure they're really small.
  7. One piece at a time, dip the sole first into the egg mixture, then cover it with crumbs.
  8. Melt some butter in a frying pan.
  9. Fry the pieces of sole for about 10 minutes, until they're cooked.
  10. Make sure the bottom of the pan is always buttery, even if it's a non-stick pan.
  11. It softens the crust and makes it stick together.

Great recipe! Always looking for ways to include the kids in food preparation and this works great for all ages.Were a spicey group so we added fresh ground pepper and Garlic powder to the cracker mixture.
