Kellogg’s® recently challenged 50 different culinary influencers to think outside the (cereal) box and create a new unique breakfast recipe using a Kellogg® cereal. Recipes like Frosted Mini-Wheats® with matcha powder and skim milk, Kellogg’s Corn Flakes® chilaquiles, Mediterranean style Rice Krispies® and more were some of the star recipes chefs and foodies created.

I was lucky enough to be asked to create my own recipe for their #StirUpBreakfast campaign! I knew from the beginning I wanted to incorporate my favorite Kellogg’s® cereal, Special K Original®. Special K Original® is a low-fat cereal that has a variety of different flavors to choose from that I knew would easily fit into a creative breakfast dish. During a recent visit to Charleston for our honeymoon I had grits several times and fell in love with this popular Southern dish. My goal was to create a sweet breakfast version of my new favorite and integrate Special K Original®.

After a bit of research I found that I could turn grits from savory to sweet with the addition of milk, honey, a dash of cinnamon, and a dollop of jam! Special K Original’s ® Fruit and Yogurt seemed like they would be the perfect crunchy addition to top off the creamy grits. The yogurt covered clusters in the cereal would go nicely with my favorite jam, a spicy habanero raspberry flavor, and the whole grain wheat flakes would provide a nice and crunchy textural contrast to the dish.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups of milk
  • ½ cup of quick cooking grits
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoons of honey
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • Pinch of cinnamon
  • ¼ cup
  • Kellogg’s® Special K® Fruit and Yogurt cereal
  • 2 tablespoons of your favorite jam

Directions

  1. Add milk to pot and heat until it just comes to a boil, then add grits
  2. Turn down heat to low and cook grits 5-7 minutes until thickened
  3. Turn off heat and add butter, honey, salt and cinnamon
  4. Spoon grits into bowl and top with jam and Special K Original®
  5. Enjoy!
