|Behold the fried cheerios in their glistening glory!|
If you cringe at the word 'fried' and want to sophisticate-'em-up, you could call them 'sauteed Cheerios'. That works, too.
So why try 'em? Well, if you're looking for a healthy vehicle for butter and salt and are too lazy to make popcorn, then, hey!, these are for you. They have iron, zinc, B12, folic acid, and a whole bunch of other good-for-you vitamins!
I use Earth Balance (vegan) butter, but you can obviously use whatever kind of butter you like. Just plop some butter in a frying pan, warm it up on medium/medium-high heat, and then pour in a bunch of Cheerios and stir a few times until they're deliciously brown. (I use Trader Joe's O's which are whole grain. Maybe Cheerios are, too, not sure.) Add salt, and there you go! You're welcome. :)
