With the Royal Wedding fast approaching, these family friendly activities will help make the event extra special and memorable. Invite friends over for a viewing party and wow them with these easy to make gourmet hors d’oeuvres, desserts, and dazzling fascinators.
Kellogg’s partnered with former Royal Chef, Darren McGrady to give breakfast a posh makeover. I had the chance to try some of the cereal-centric, regal-inspired, recipes at a recent media-event and can guarantee they will delight your guests!
I’m a cereal lover, and it was amazing to see how versatile some of my favourite cereals could be in elevated cuisine. Chef McGrady was the personal chef to the royal household for fifteen years. Now he helps us home chefs entertain with a regal touch with inspiration from his popular cookbooks: “Eating Royally: Recipes and Remembrances from a Palace Kitchen” and “The Royal Chef at Home“.
The following recipes feature a range of Kelloggs’s cereals in ways I had never considered would yield such delicious final products! The menu was inspired by the Royal Wedding festivities but I’m going to be making some of these dishes long after the wedding buzz has dissipated. They’re that good!
Krispy Gems- Kellogg’s Rice Krispies Encrusted Scotch Eggs with Sausage and Bacon
Bars of Gold- Kellogg’s Corn Flakes English Flap-Jacks with Seeds
Special Krown- Kellogg’s Special K Royal Breakfast Bowl
Stately Scones- Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes Scones with Macerated Strawberry, Basil and Whipped Froot Loops Cream

*All of the recipes can be found here on the Kellogg’s Canada website*
Crafting more your thing? Kellogg’s partnered with Kelly Dempsey, former Project Runway contestant to create DIY fancy fascinators. Your guests won’t believe they’re made from cereal boxes! What an awesome idea to repurpose a common household item in such a fun way. There are how-to videos on the Kellogg Canada Facebook Page.
Don’t forget to share photos of your gourmet creations, fascinators and Royal Wedding viewing parties with the hashtag #KelloggsRegalBreakfast. Can’t wait to see a glimpse of your festivities!
