Expert Tips

Crush cereal by placing it in a plastic bag or between sheets of waxed paper and crushing with a rolling pin or a small pot. Or speed through the process with a blender or food processor if available.

No Cajun seasoning on hand? Experiment with other blends and herbs, such as Italian blends, thyme or even chili powder.
