4 Recipes Using Cereal as a Secret Ingredient
1. Warm Sesame-Chicken Salad
This chicken salad is anything but ordinary. Chicory, frisée, and green cabbage tossed with a white wine-tarragon vinaigrette make a lively bed for strips of breaded chicken coated in crisp cornflakes and aromatic sesame seeds. A little chili powder in the coating adds a bit of kick. Get the recipe.
2. Glazed Apple Tart
With a rich butter crust and plenty of juicy apples, this tart is about as classic and comforting a dessert as you can get. What’s different in this version is that the apples are crowned with an extra-crunchy almond topping made with store-bought granola cereal. Get the recipe.
3. Ham and Cheese Breakfast Strata recipe
Stratas are made with layers of egg-soaked bread, cheese, and your favorite high-flavor ingredients like bacon, sausage, sun-dried tomatoes, or other vegetables. Our version includes ham and a surprisingly crisp topping made with cornflakes. Get the recipe.
4. Crunchy Banana Parfait
