We like cereal in our house and not just for breakfast.  Sometimes cereal is a snack or even a meal option for lunch or dinner.  What is fun about cereal lovers like us is when we head to Walmart to do our weekly shopping and we pick out our cereal choices.  We have always bought one box or bag of cereal for the kids and one box or bag for the adults.  Post Cereal makes this task easy because there are so many options that make each of us happy.  One of the kid's favorite is the Berry Colossal Crunch cereal!  We always have some on hand for school mornings. 

Last week, I planned on making a family favorite for dinner but totally forgot one of the ingredients, so I opened the pantry door and stood there looking for something that would work and it hit me. I picked up the Honey Bunches of Oats Crunch O's and poured some into a plastic bag and ended up with an delicious, home cooked meal in less than an hour!!

Our family loves pork almost as much as we love cereal so this meal is truly a hit with everyone. Even though I forgot the normal Panko bread crumbs for this recipe I was able to create a new recipe that I know will become a regular on our meal plan. While it does take awhile to bake, this is a very easy meal that will make everyone full and happy.  The pork cooks so well and the addition of the sweet honey cereal makes the pork have a little twist of sweet crunch to every bite.

  1. I just started trying cereal as a bread coating for our dinners. We already love Honey Bunches of Oats but I haven't tried the Crunch O's yet. Thanks for this great recipe idea! #client

  2. I have used a lot of products to create a coating, but never cereal. This looks really tasty. I think I'll have to give it a try. I bet my kids will love it.

  3. This is hilarious. How inventive. If it had been me I would have just poured the cereal in a bowl and eaten it. This pork loin actually looks delicious. Well done.

  4. I love cooking pork loins! I have never thought to try on with a cereal breading like this on the pork. I have done chicken strips with breading made of cereal. This looks really good I am going to have to try this out.

  5. Brilliant idea! I know I've made honey glazed pork many times...I could kill two birds with one stone and use this cereal instead! Actually, I'd have to get the family's approval, since I don't even eat meat!

  6. Wow! I haven't really thought that we can use cereals to make more exciting recipes. The honey crunch o's crusted pork lion looks so delicious. I can almost imagine it to taste like the Japanese katsu but a little sweeter.
