“Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.” I find myself saying this to my children several times a week, and giving them all the reasons why they should eat a good breakfast before heading off to school. But, do I take my own advice? Not very often. Usually it’s greek yogurt and fruit… easy to grab right from the fridge and take to work.
However, I do love my breakfast.. it’s probably my most favorite meal of the day. So, when I do have time to sit down before work, my go-to breakfast is a crunchy bowl of Kellogg’s Corn Flakes cereal with low-fat milk, berries, and almonds. Hearty and filling, and just what is needed to get me through my busy day as a Scheduling Coordinator.
I’m happy to share Tip #26 with you in the series of Team Kellogg’s Great Starts Tips. These recipes will help you to think outside the box when preparing meals for your family using your favorite Kellogg’s cereal.
We can almost always count on having an extra mouth or two
or five to feed over the weekend. Our kids love to host sleepovers, and we sometimes keep our granddaughters overnight as well. Cereal is a popular, easy-to-prepare breakfast for the little ones. However, my older children and their friends have much heartier appetites, so I am usually beckoned into the kitchen to prepare “a feast” for them. Scrambled eggs, our favorite french toast (recipe below) topped with fresh strawberries, milk and 100% fruit juice gives them a great start to their busy day.
I have used Kellogg’s Corn Flakes in many of my recipes either as the main ingredient or as a complimentary add-in. My favorite use for corn flakes is probably with my Corn Flake Crusted Baked “Fried” Chicken. I simply crush the corn flakes in a zipper baggie using a rolling pin. Add in your favorite seasonings…. I like salt, pepper, garlic powder, and a bit of cayenne pepper. Mix well. Rinse your chicken breasts and pat dry. Then pound them out using a meat mallet to about 1/2 thickness.
Prepare your “dipping station” by making your egg wash (adding a little milk while beating) and your crushed corn flakes in another shallow bowl. Dip each chicken breast into the egg wash and then coat evenly with corn flake mixture. Drizzle olive oil onto a baking sheet or coat with cooking spray. Lay each chicken breast on the baking sheet approximately 2 inches apart and place in a 350 degree oven for about 50 minutes (flipping chicken 1/2 way through) or until cooked through and crispy.
