(4 servings)

  • 3 cups Kellogg’s Rice Krispies cereal

This recipe is from a classic 1976 ad for Kellogg's Rice Krispies. The ad promotes it as "a hot cheesy sandwich with a crunchy coat - for lunch." But I think it's probably more suited for breakfast as it's essentially an unusual French toast dish. As per most stuffed French toast recipes, a sandwich is made and it's then dredged through an egg and milk mixture. Then it's fried or baked. It's just that in this case it's filled with cheese and coated with Rice Krispies. At any rate, take the ad's advice and don't let your Rice Krispies sit in your cupboard. Try this unique dish for any meal or even a snack.
