When I was asked to make a few dishes by the folk that represent Weetbix, well I jumped at the chance. Weetbix has been a household favourite of mine even before I was a parent, and back further when I was a child myself. There is something quintessentially Australian about the humble Weetbix. But I'm also here to remind you to look beyond just limiting this favourite icon to flooding a bowl of Weetbix with milk for breakfast. Weetbix are truely a universal staple to have in your pantry.
Come with me on a journey and discover the possibilities that await you....
1. Weetbix, date and nut balls :: 1 cup chopped dried pitted dates, 1/2 cup roasted nuts of your choice, 2 weetbix, 1 tbs honey or you could use peanut butter :: Process in a food processor until all blitzed and starting to stick :: roll into small balls with your hand and coat with coconut. A great healthy sweet snack perfect with a strong coffee!
2. Salmon and Weetbix bites - Mix a 400g tin of red salmon with 2 crushed Weetbix, 1 egg, some grated cheese and if you like some grated vegetable of your choice. Roll into small sized balls. Dip in egg yolk and then into bread crumbs and fry in some vegetable oil until golden. Serve with a dip of your choice and slices of lemon.
3.Stuffed capsicum with Weetbix and Parmesan crumb - fry off some onions and vegetables and until soft and browning :: Add a cup of cooked rice (brown or white) and stir to combine :: Spoon mixture into half capsicums :: In a bowl crush one weetbix and mix with a tablespoon of grated Parmesan :: sprinkle liberally over the top of each capsicum to cover the filling :: place capsicums in a baking dish, fill a with a little water and then cover with foil and bake in the oven for about 30 minutes or until the capsicum is soft, remove foil and bake for a further 10 minutes or until the crust is nice and golden.
