Cheese Potato Crisps

So there were a few recipes I wanted to make from The Cereal Murders, but I didn’t have a chance to. So instead I decided to pull out a recipe that actually uses cereal and place it here instead. I’ve made this recipe so many times, the page is all messed up and torn-it is that good.

So this recipe comes from The Kellogg’s Cookbook and uses the cereal corn flakes. I am telling you this is one of the best potato dishes ever-no joke.

You defintely need to try it yourself.

“These are better than French fries! We guarantee that once you try them, you’ll make these cheesy potatoes a standard at your table. Using different cheeses such as Monterey Jack, American, Swiss, or grated Parmesan cheese, and a bit of chili powder easily adds variety and keeps the dish interesting.

Ingredients:

  • 2 Cups of Kellogg’s Corn Flakes
  • 3 Large Baking Potatoes, peeled and cut lengthwise into 1/4-inch thick slices
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 Cup of Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of Paprika
  • 1/4 Cup of Sliced Scallions or Green Onions
  • Non-Stick Cooking Spray

Directions:

  1. Place the corn flakes in a reusable plastic bag.
  2. Seal the bag and, using a rolling pin, crush the flakes to a medium crumb.
  3. Open the bag and measure the crumbs, you should have 1 cup. Set aside.
  4. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  5. Lightly coat a large baking sheet with Non-Stick Cooking Spray.
  6. Lay the potatoes on the prepared baking sheet in a single layer. Lightly coat with Non-Stick Cooking Spray.
  7. Sprinkle the potatoes with salt to taste.
  8. Sprinkle each potato with some of the cheese.
  9. Top with corn flake crumbs and a sprinkling of paprika.
  10. Bake in the preheated oven, without turning, for about 25 mins, or until potatoes are cooked through and golden brown.
  11. Remove from oven and transfer to a serving platter.
  12. Serve with scallions.

Thoughts After Cooking:

Sorry no picture, but these are the best potatoes ever! After eating this, it will be all you want.

The Cereal Murders (Goldy Bear Culinary Mystery #3) by Diane Mott Davidson

Things are going well for Goldy. She had to change her name, but since then she has a contract with her son’s school, Elk Park Preparatory school, providing refreshments for the senior college advisory events.

Julian Teller, the boy that Goldie is caring from since her last adventure in Dying for Chocolateis a senior and involved in all these events. He is having a particularly hard time competing with all these other kids who are striving for Ivy League, while he wishes for culinary school.

The first event is a tired affair, as the parents are insufferable. To make things worse, her assistant’s child is also a senior so she has to hear “my kid is best” in the kitchen and in the hall.

The child who is getting the prized scholarship is Keith Andrews, “Saint Andrews” to others. He gives a speech, but upsets many people.  When the event continues with no problem, other than the wiring being bad and the lights going out.

Goldie is in a hurry to get home as it is snowing ferociously outside. As she prepares to leave she spots something in the snow. It looks like a coat and she goes to pick it up when it turns out to be a body.

Keith Andrews.

It turns out old Keith wasn’t any Saint. He was a blackmailer with something on everyone, had lied about his resume and who he was, and had a newspaper story that is rumored to blow the top off “something.”

Hmm…

No one liked him which means there are a numerous amount of suspects out there.

Goldy tries not to get involved, but soon finds herself a target; from broken windows, iced walkways, threatening calls, and Arch being victim of some extremely creepy pranks. (So creepy I would have sued the school for not doing anything.)

But the body count doesn’t stay with just one. Others are killed in gruesome ways in order to help a child continue to their Ivy League Dream. But which child? Or which parent?

Hmm…

Thoughts After Reading:

It was an extremely compelling mystery, although the “college” and “my kid is best” talk gets very boring.

However, the rest of the novel kept me turning pages as I just had to know who the killer was.

The end, fantastic. I loved it.
