I love your recipes that use crushed Fiber One cereal for fake-frying foods
and making high-fiber pie crusts. What's the best method for turning the
Fiber One cereal into breadcrumbs? How can I pulverize those little twigs
without making a big mess? Advice, HG?
Crushin' on Cereal
Dear Crushin' on Cereal,
I definitely have some tips for you. When you use Fiber One bran cereal to
make "breadcrumbs" in HG recipes, you should pretty much turn it into
DUST. The best way to get that done is by putting it in a blender or food
processor. (The Magic Bullet Platinum Pro is my personal favorite.) The thing
is, lots of people have issues with these appliances -- either they don't own
one (or just hate to bust it out to pulverize some Fiber One), or they forget
that the thing has to be COMPLETELY dry when grinding the cereal and wind
up ruining the batch by getting it all wet and clumpy. I like to grind up a
whole lot of it at once and then keep a big airtight container of the crumbs on
hand for recipes. If you do this, know that 1/4 cup of the crumbs is equal to
about 1/2 cup of the cereal. Another GREAT option for Fiber One "crumbing"
is to use an electric coffee grinder. It's small, easy to use, and pretty
inexpensive, too. But you might want to designate it as a food-only grinder --
I don't think bran-flavored coffee would be very good! And remember to
always use the original F1 cereal. BTW, for those of you who are unfamiliar
with HG's famous "F1 breadcrumb" recipes, take a peek at our Lord of the
Onion Rings, Crispity Crunchity Drumsticks, Freezylicious Strawberry
Squares, and Baked Clam Halfsies. And check out Hungry Girl 200 Under 200
for an entire "Fun with Fiber One" chapter! Happy pulverizing!
