Cornflakes & Eggs

Cornflakes & Eggs by Humuhumu

My ultimate comfort food breakfast.


  • 1 cup cornflakes
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp salted butter
1 serving


Break the cornflakes down into smaller bits. I use a potato masher for this, the old rolling pin & sack trick would work, too.

Melt butter in a small frying pan on medium or medium-high heat. Add egg to frying pan, breaking it up with your implement of choice as it fries. You're aiming for the whites to be fully cooked, the yolk a little less so, so leave the yolk alone at first.

Slop the buttery eggy mixture into the cornflakes, and toss them together until evenly mixed.

8 minutes

    This was one of my grandmothers favorite recipes to feed us when we spent the night at her house. She was born 1898. Passing it on to my grandkids!

    I do this. Only I soft boil my eggs and top it all off with salt and pepper. My family has been eating soft boiled eggs and corn flakes for 5 generations now. It's been a delightful/shameful family secret since forever. I seriously thought we were the only people in the world that did this.
