Recipes that use corn flakes as the secret ingredient
One of America's favorite cereals, corn flakes are synonymous with breakfast time. Pour some of these famous toasted flakes of corn into a bowl, add milk, and enjoy a fast and easy start to the day. You're probably familiar with the a.m. drill, but did you know that these satisfyingly crunchy gems make them ideal for use in many other culinary preparations as well? Oh, yes!
Brothers W.K. Kellogg and John Harvey Kellogg famously began flaking corn in 1898 after inadvertently flaking wheat berry initially. Now, for over a century, Kellogg has been the leading manufacturer of the corn flakes you know and love. While other brands have since started making cereals similar to the Kellogg version, it's all good. Whether you pick the original or the knockoff, sugared-up corn is usually delicious.
Crispy, light, and not overly sweet, corn flakes are tasty eaten alone, but they also lend themselves well to many other dishes. From coating chicken with the most delectable crust and adding unexpected crunch to your favorite cookie to infusing muffins with an extra dose of corn flavor, this breakfast cereal can be quite sneaky about its versatility. I'm here to let the corny cat out of the bag.
