This was very good! I won't say my kids loved it but my husband and I did. Afer reading other reviews I did the following: I made sure the fish weren't crowded in the pan. I used a shallow pan, and I cooked it in a 375 degree convection oven for 30 minutes. It came out crispy on the outside and just right on the inside.

The idea was good, but the catfish turned out a little bland and mushy. I ended up turning the oven on to broil to crisp up the crust. The fish would have turned out better if the fish was fried instead of baked. If I make it again I will definitely need to add more seasoning and use bread crumbs instead of flour. I use the same ingredients, substitute the flour for breadcrumbs, on chicken breast. It is really good. The breadcrumbs give the fish or chicken a crispier crust than the flour does.

I was a little hesitant to make this recipe but I'm so glad I did. I made a few changes. I seasoned the catfish with a bit of salt, garlic, and black pepper before dipping into the egg. For the flour/cheese mixture, I didn't use any flour at all, I subsituted the flour with seasoned bread crumbs, and I added cayenne pepper to the mixture. I baked it in the oven for about 35 minutes, then put it in the broiler for another 5 minutes for crispiness. Once crispy, I spread some shredded cheddar cheese on top of the filets, and left it in the oven(not broiler again) for a couple of minutes, until the cheddar was melted. It was perfect!! My husband had seconds, and leftovers for lunch the next day. He said this is one of his favorites now. Thanks!!!
