Breakfast Muffins
(source: Edith Erickson via Darcy Carnegie)

2 1/2 cups cereal - any kind works except Wheat Germ
1/2 cup Red River cereal
1/2 cup raisins or nuts - optional
1/2 cup butter - cut into little pieces

Combine these ingredients.

1 cup boiling water

Pour over all and after butter dissolves, add:

2 eggs
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 cups milk or buttermilk
1 tsp salt
2 1/2 tsp baking soda
2 1/2 cups flour

Bake in a 350 - 375 over for 15 - 20 minutes for medium sized muffin tins. Bake longer if using larger muffin tins using traditional tests for doneness.

Recipe can be easily doubled and keeps a long time in the fridge!

These are really good - and a great way to add the fiber of Red River cereal, while getting rid of cereal that's been sitting around just long enough to lose its crunch.
