Fried Cheerios
Cook time
Total time
A crazy simple recipe for a 90s back-of-the-box classic.
Serves: 2
  • 1½ tablespoons butter, preferably salted
  • 1 cup Cheerios
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • Pinch salt (if your butter isn't salted)
  1. In a small frying pan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the Cheerios, and cook, stirring to redistribute, until the cereal has turned golden and is very fragrant. Add the oregano and cook another minute. Taste a Cheerio to see if you'd like to add salt, and add some if you'd like. Transfer to a bowl and serve. (You can make these ahead of time. Cool to room temp before storing in an airtight container.)
