I am not a gourmet chef or top notch cook. Anything I make is self taught since I moved out at the age of 23. I was spoiled by my mom since she cooked all the meals with very little help. Over the years I learned to make a pretty good pasta dishes.
I have always thought to myself we don't eat enough fiber. I have two boxes of Kellogg's All-Bran and my kids won't touch them. I love putting All Bran Buds in my yogurt and sometimes mixing it with another cereal.
Kellogg's suggested incorporating their All Bran cereal into my favourite recipes. At first I was thinking of making homemade burgers but that was too much work when I get home from a 9-5 job. So I decided to make my Spaghetti. It is fast and simple to make. This time when I was mixing the sauce and ground beef together I put in roughly a 1/2 cup of All Bran Buds and watch it disappear in the mixture.
As I served it to my family, I asked how it taste. They all said it was good. Everyone finished their dinner even my oldest daughter. Usually I have to persuade her to finish it. It was a success! So the next time I make my chili or another pot of spaghetti I will remember to add some All Bran Buds into the sauce. Now I have an itch to make All Bran pancakes for dinner tomorrow.
