ISO recipes that use corn flakes

I have a huge box of corn flakes, I really don't know what to do with them. I bought them to make fried chicken with a little while ago, and I really don't like them for cereal. How would you use up a box of corn flakes?

When I grew up my mother would put Corn Flakes in a skillet with some butter. Get the flakes covered in butter and warm and she served them over scrambled eggs.

I would either tough it out and eat them as cereal, or start thinking of things to batter with them. Maybe change how far you smash them up to give you different textures. Stick them in meatloaf instead of breadcrumbs... Or feed the birds.

I'd run them through the blender to pulverize and put the cornflake crumbs in a zip type baggie to use for all those recipes you just got.

The baggie can fit almost anywhere and you can at least get rid of the box that takes up so much room.

Good idea, Z.
Then every time you open up the cupboard you won't have that green rooster reminding you that you bought a big box of corn flakes
