Ingredients

  • 3 1/2 Cups Corn Flakes
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 Cup milk
  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 Teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/8 Teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 Pound ground beef
  • 1 Cup shredded Cheddar cheese

Directions

Cush 2 cups of Corn Flakes slightly in mixing bowl. Add eggs and milk. Mix well. Let stand 5 minutes or until cereal softens. Stir in salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Add beef and cheese, mixing until combined.

Crush the remaining 1 1/2 cups cereal into fine crumbs. Shape beef mixture into 1-inch meatballs. Roll in cereal crumbs. Place in single layer in shallow baking pan coated with cooking spray.

Bake at 400 degrees for about 12 minutes. Serve as appetizer with chili sauce dip or as entrée with buttered noodles. Serve hot.

Cheddar Shopping Tip

If a piece of cheese smells strongly of ammonia, don't buy it. This is typically a sign of spoilage.

Cheddar Cooking Tip

Allow cheese to come to room temperature before serving. This will accentuate the flavors and aromas.

Cheddar Wine Pairing

Rich white wines and full-bodied reds go well with most cheeses and cheese-based dishes. Some specific recommendations: chardonnay or pinot blanc with goat cheese; dry chenin blanc with earthy cheeses; rosé or sercial madeira with melted-cheese appetizers; port with blue cheese (especially stilton); amontillado sherry or syrah/shiraz with strong cheeses; olooros or palo cortado sherry with creamy cheeses; merlot or carménère with mild cheeses; cabernet sauvignon, malbec, mourvèdre, Rhône blends, or petite sirah with cheddar- or gouda-type cheeses; nero d'avola with full-flavored Spanish or Italian cheeses; sangiovese with dishes using parmigiano-reggiano and similar cheeses.
