Tasty Tuesday: Salt and Toasted Cheerios

Emma 1

Welcome to Tasty Tuesday, everyone! Veering from the usual Nannie's recipe (gotta hit my Momma up for some more of those) today I'm paying tribute to Cheerios!

As you can see from the picture above Emma loves Cheerios (or in our case Trader Joe's O's- whatever works). They are an absolute staple in any house with toddlers. These things go everywhere with us- Cheerios are our go to food!

For me personally, I like some flavor on my O's. I'm a salt fan so if I'm going to eat them, I like to fix them like my Mom used to fix me as a kid.

Which leads me to the Tasty Tuesday Recipe!!! I would say this isn't the most appropriate snack for younger children just because of the salt content. My Emma hasn't tried these yet because like her Mother, she'd become a sodium junkie! You be the judge, though.

For more of Tasty Tuesday, head on over to Balancing Beauty and Bedlam and tell them Kelli sent ya!

Salt and Toasted Cheerios

(Make as much or as little as you want)




Throw some butter in a pan to melt it. Then add you some Cheerios. Salt them a bit and shake them around! Voila, you're done!! They might be a little greasy, but they are GOOOOOD!

and if you want a healthier version....

Throw you some Cheerios on a baking sheet. Spray them down with butter spray and salt them. Then pop them in the oven for a few minutes at 350 degrees.


PS- Check out my Etsy shop for new aprons that I'm adding daily!

Have mercy - she is scrumptious! I need some sugars from her!! Oh, the cheerios sound good, too. ;) I could probably put down a whole box of salted O's!!

Oh, Cheerios... how did mothers raise children before God created Cheerios? LOVE them ... and this "improvement" looks delish.

I would have never thought to do anything like this with Cheerios! But Miss Emma sure is lovin' it! I will have to remember this if we ever get more O's around here. Thanks!! =-)

We used to have this when I was a kid! It was our favorite late-night TV snack.
My wife just made a batch using cinnamon and sugar instead of salt (you bake this version) - they're so good!
