    I can't say I've ever cooked with them but was thinking they might be an interesting breadcrumb substitute especially for fish which doesn't take long to cook (could imagine them burning easily). Doing a Google here's a blog post I found with a recipe from a cookbook called Out of the Pantry for fish fingers:

    Gday and big thanks

    Perhaps now I can create a niche cookbook for Sanitarium based on OTHER things to do with Weetbix

    DH does not eat fish at all and am thinking would be a tad (ok, more than a tad dry) for chicken...

    have my OWN curiosity now and will continue to search...must be SOMETHING we can do with them lol

    thanks

    GREATLY appreciate your time and reply

    WHOO HOO

    Best to Maxine too icon_smile.gif

    Hi Mickey; Sorry for the slow reply, couldn't get on here but am here now & hope you have some Weetbix left! icon_biggrin.gif
    First, I found that if you search for "weetabix" on here (same thing) you will find 21 recipes: http://www.food.com/recipe-finder/all/weetabix Some seem sweet, but others look like they may suit your needs.
    You might also try http://www.weetabix.ca/recipe_front.asp#recipes although I found it a little hard to load. I also found a recipe for Crunchy Herb Potatoes with Weetabix. It was on a Yahoo site.
    INGREDIENTS
    ¼ cup (50ml) vegetable oil
    2 tsp (10ml) crushed garlic
    3 large potatoes (1.5lbs/680g) peeled and cubed
    2 WEETABIX*, crushed
    1 tbsp mixed dried herbs (your choice)
    Salt & pepper to taste
    INSTRUCTIONS
    1. Heat oil and garlic in a pan over low heat. Saute 2 minutes. Remove from heat and add potatoes. Toss well to coat with oil. Drain off excess oil into a 9” x 13” (3.5L) baking pan.
    2. Meanwhile, thoroughly combine crushed WEETABIX®, herbs, salt and pepper in a large plastic bag.
    3. Spoon potatoes into plastic bag and shake well until potatoes are thoroughly coated with WEETABIX®.
    4. Pour into 9” x 13’ (3.5L) pan and bake at 375 F (190 C) for about 30-35 minutes or until potatoes are cooked and nicely browned. Serve immediately.

    I've used Weetbix as a substitute for breadcrumbs before when making rissoles/meatballs...works a treat! (actually, technically they were the good ol' Woolies homebrand 'wheat biscuits'...love being a poor uni student haha!!)

    Years ago Weet-bix had an advert and it refered to the truckers scone (a trucker stopping in the middle of Nullabour and making his morning/afternoon tea - out of the esky came the jam and the cream which was topped onto the Weet-bix), maybe substitute yoghurt for the cream for a healthier option) or their is my recipe of Breakfast Drink for the Young and Not so Young 240947.

    Gday and thanks

    am not being lazy and did see both of those sites

    Am trying to use them up in a healthier sort of way that fits into our dr directed lifestyle

    most of the recipes don't fit the tee and that's why I asked the q in the first place thinking possibly people here have tried recipes outside the square so to speak

    thanks

    WHOO HOO!
