Welcome to my recipe blog. I created this blog so I could share my high calorie recipes. My daughter, Rachel, has CF and I'm always looking for recipes loaded with calories. I hope you see a recipe you'll want to try. Happy browsing.

Fried Cheerios

Fried Cheerios.  Yes, that is correct.  I got this recipe from my friend, Megan.  She said her mom used to make these for her when she was a kid and now she makes them for her kids.  I finally made them this evening and they're pretty darn good to munch on.  I hope you'll try them.

Oh, don't you know we start with butter!
Fried Cheerios

Ingredients -

  1. 1 cup Cheerios (plain)
  2. about 3 T butter
  3. salt to taste
Directions -
  1. Melt the butter in a skillet over a medium/medium high heat.
  2. Add Cheerios, stirring constantly (they can easily burn).
  3. Cheerios are done when they are nice and golden brown (they'll also shrink a bit).
  4. Remove from the skillet into a paper towel lined bowl. 
  5. Salt to taste.
  6. Enjoy.  I liked eating them warm.

Mmm.  Crunchy and buttery!

Rachel approved!

  1. Love fried Cheerios, just made some tonight. I season mine w/ garlic, onion, salt & Chili powder. Sometimes even cheesy popcorn seasoning. They're better than popcorn, no kernels or emergency dentist visits from kernel skins digging into gums. (True Story) lol Definitely a cherished recipe from childhood & one to pass on! CHEERIO xoxoxo
