Fried Cheerios

I haven't had Fried Cheerios in such a long time. The first time I had them I was probably 5 - at my best friends house.  Still whenever I make them- I think of her (Hi Sheri!)

For starters - grab a pan - and turn on your stove.

Get some butter.  For me - you can never have too much.  I hate when people don't give me an exact amount.  I am going to guess.....2-3 TBS. 

Then let the butter melt.

Then the Garlic Powder or Garlic Salt....This is all I had on hand...I need to go shopping!  I used a few shakes of it - I would guess about 1-2 tsp. 

Dump your cheerio's in the hot butter.  How much...what ever looks good - I'd say about 1-2 cups.  Maybe more. 

Stir them around.

Make sure they are toasted -  you'll see them start to get a little darker - covered in butter - and smelling super garlicky!!  MMmmmm

You can see it start to brown a little.

Seriously good stuff here!

Then dish them up - and you are good to go!
