Ingredients
1/3 cup cornflake crumbs
1/3 cup cholesterol-free egg substitute
2 tablespoons fat-free (skim) milk
3/4 teaspoon dried dill weed
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
Dash hot pepper sauce
1 can (about 14 ounces) salmon, drained and skin and bones removed
Nonstick cooking spray
1 teaspoon olive oil
6 tablespoons tartar sauce
5 small pimiento pieces

Directions
1 – Combine cornflake crumbs, egg substitute, milk, dill, black pepper, and hot pepper sauce in large bowl. Add salmon; mix well.

2 – Shape salmon mixture into 5 large egg-shaped balls. Flatten each ball into 3/4-inch-thick oval. Pinch one end of each oval to make tail shape.

3 – Spray large nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Cook fish over medium-high heat 2 to 3 minutes per side or until firm and lightly browned. Turn fish over, adding oil to skillet, as necessary, to prevent sticking and increase browning.

4 – Place small drop tartar sauce and pimiento on each fish to make “eye.” Serve with remaining tartar sauce, if desired.

5 – Serving Suggestion: For a tasty side dish of sea plants, serve fish on a bed of shredded Romaine lettuce and matchstick-size cucumber slices.

Yield: 5 servings.

Serving size: 1 salmon patty.

Pass the Corn Flakes please…………

For added crunch with fewer calories, use cornflakes instead of breadcrumbs to coat fish fillets. Not only do cornflakes contain fewer calories than breadcrumbs, they are less absorbent and give a lighter covering, so the fish will soak up less oil.

One of America’s Favorites – Corn Flakes

Corn flakes

Corn flakes

Corn flakes are a popular breakfast cereal originally manufactured by Kellogg’s through the treatment of maize. A patent for the product was filed on May 31, 1895, and issued on April 14, 1896.

 

 
The accidental legacy of corn flakes goes back to the late 19th century, when a team of Seventh-day Adventists began to develop new food to adhere to the vegetarian diet recommended by the church. Members of the group experimented with a number of different grains, including wheat, oats, rice, barley, and corn. In 1894, Dr. John Harvey Kellogg, the superintendent of The Battle Creek Sanitarium in Michigan and an Adventist, used these recipes as part of a strict vegetarian regimen for his patients, which also included no alcohol, tobacco, or caffeine. The diet he imposed consisted entirely of bland foods. A follower of Sylvester Graham, the inventor of graham crackers and graham bread, Kellogg believed that spicy or sweet foods would increase passions.

This idea for corn flakes began by accident when Kellogg and his younger brother, Will Keith Kellogg, left some

cooked wheat to sit while they attended to some pressing matters at the sanitarium. When they returned, they found that the wheat had gone stale, but being on a strict budget, they decided to continue to process it by forcing it through rollers, hoping to obtain long sheets of the dough. To their surprise, what they found instead were flakes, which they toasted and served to their patients. This event occurred on August 8, 1894, and a patent for “Flaked Cereals and Process of Preparing Same” was filed on May 31, 1895, and issued on April 14, 1896.

The flakes of grain, which the Kelloggs called granose, were a very popular food among the patients. The brothers then experimented with other flakes from other grains. In 1906, Will Keith Kellogg, who served as the business manager of the sanitarium, decided to try to mass-market the new food. At his new company, Battle Creek Toasted Corn Flake Company, he added sugar to the flakes to make them more palatable to a mass audience, but this caused a rift between his brother and him. To increase sales, in 1909, he added a special offer, the Funny Jungleland Moving Pictures Booklet, which was made available to anyone who bought two boxes of the cereal. This same premium was offered for 22 years. At the same time, Kellogg also began experimenting with new grain cereals to expand his product line. Rice Krispies, his next great hit, first went on sale in 1928.

There have been many mascots of Kellogg’s Cornflakes. The most popular one is a green rooster named Cornelius (Corny) Rooster, which has been the mascot since his debut. In earlier commercials, he had a speaking part and his catch phrase was “Wake up, up, up to Kellogg’s Cornflakes!” He was voiced by Dallas McKennon and Andy Devine. Later, he stopped talking and simply crowed. The concept of using a stylized cockerel originated in a suggestion by Kellogg family friend Nansi Richards, a harpist from Wales and a Welsh language proponent. The Welsh word for cockerel is ceiliog (pronounced Kellogg).

 

 

 

A former patient of the Battle Creek Sanitarium named C. W. Post started a rival company, as well as the major other brand of corn flakes in the United States, called Post Toasties. Australia’s Sanitarium also manufactures their own brand of corn flakes called Skippy corn flakes. Many generic brands of corn flakes are produced by various manufacturers. In addition, Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Morrisons, Asda Co-operative, etc. have brought out similar products based on cornflakes. A variety of corn flakes that is sold in the United Kingdom is one where honey and nuts have been added to the corn flakes – this is known colloquially as “honey nut corn flakes”, and as Crunchy Nut under the Kelloggs brand name.

 

 

 

A wide variety of different recipes for dishes involving corn flakes exist. A popular example is Chocolate Corn Flake Cakes, and a variant made without syrup to bind the chocolate covered flakes called ‘kalabash’, eaten as a snack food (like popcorn).

Crushed corn flakes can substitute for bread crumbs.

Today’s Menu: Fried Walleye w/ Cheesy Potato Casserole, Green Beans, and Whole Grain Bread
While at Meijer yesterday they had Ocean Perch and walleye both on sale in their Seafood Department. I ended up picking up a couple Walleye Chessy Potato CASS 004of pounds of each. So tonight I went with the Walleye, preparing Fried Walleye w/ Cheesy Potato Casserole, Green Beans, and Whole Grain Bread.

 
To prepare the Walleye I first rinsed it with water and patting dry with paper towel. Then I seasoned it with Morton’s Lite Salt and Ground Pepper and lightly coated it with Progresso Italian Style Bread Crumbs. I pan fried it in Canola Oil about 3 1/2 minutes per side. As always Walleye frys up to a perfect golden brown and delicious as always also. For side dishes it was leftovers, Green Beans from yesterday’s meal and Ore Ida Cheesy Potato Casserole that I had frozen. I just warmed both up in the microwave and they were ready! I love this Cheesy Potato Casserole! It’s become one of my favorite dishes and the good thing is that it freeze’s up and reheats beautifully. I’ve left the recipe at the bottom of the post. I also had a slice of healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. For dessert/snack tonight some of Newman’s Own Blackbean and Corn Salsa along with Tostito‘s Baked Scoops.

Ore Ida Cheesy Potato Casserole

Ingredients
1 bag Ore-Ida® Country Style Hash Browns
1 can cream of chicken soup
2 cup Sour cream
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cup cheddar cheese shredded
1/3 cup green onions sliced
1/4 teaspoon black pepper, ground
2 cup corn flakes crushed
1/4 cup butter, melted

Instructions
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat 13×9 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
2. In a large bowl, whisk together soup, sour cream, salt and pepper. Stir in cheese, onion and Hash Browns until well mixed. Spoon evenly into baking dish.
3. In a medium bowl, mix together cereal and butter. Sprinkle evenly on top of Hash Brown mixture.
4. Bake uncovered for about 45 minutes, or until hot and bubbly. Allow to rest for 5 minutes before serving. Garnish with additional sliced green onion if desired.
TIP: If desired, substitute condensed cream of chicken soup with condensed cream of turkey soup.
