    Default Cheerios

    Hi! How are you? Got into a debate with x-DP on how to cook cheerios!

    So: Do you boil them or do you zap them in the microwave?

    And: How do you get them to not peel?

    Thanks!

    Hiya,
    If you zap them, only zap them for a minute and a half at a time, check them once you get them out to see if they are cooked through
    If you boil them, only boil them for about 4 minutes, make sure you stand over them cause they will split as soon as they start getting over cooked.

    You boil them, well I do and we always have, to get them not to peel is mainly not to cook them for too long, as they are already cooked, just need to be heated.....

    You can microwave them, but you would need water in the bowl, otherwise they go tough.....

    I boil them on the stove aswell as in the microwave depends on how I feel. Half the time DF and DS eats them cold so I hardly get a chance to cook them.

    I boil the water, then turn it down as low as it can go, toss the cheerios in and let them sit for about 2-3mins. Skin never comes off!!

    What a great thread (only because I miss hearly words I grew up with)...I have lived in QLD my whole childhood, SA and now NSW...only QLDers know what a Cheerio is! In fact, in QLD, you can buy the cocktail frankfurts in the shops and they are called "Cheerios" on the packet - so there truely is a separate QLD language going on....

    I suppose the rest of the states don't know what a port is, togs are (well, you prob, know that one)...what other ones are there?

    BTW, I can never get the cooking of cheerios right...I think the main purpose is really just to heat them through.

    Lol, I loooooooooooooove cheerios...

    ...and I know what they are

    Try not to have them too often though, I am not really sure which part of the food pyramid they fit into .

    I find they are a tad on the expensive side these day. $7 a kilo...too much for what you are buying.
