did you know that “Night Cereal” was a thing? well apparently, high profile chefs around the country are now creating savory… not sweet… “Night Cereal” dishes for their customers. i shared this with my boys… who want to think they will be the next Junior Chefs, and they thought it would be fun to concoct their own version of “Night Cereal.”

we thought and thought about what kind of cereal cuisine we could create. something really unique. when it comes to unique cuisine, my boys aren’t very adventurous. however, they do love Thai food, and we often go to a special nostalgic Thai food place in Los Angeles. they love this place, so why not create a twist on Thai food.

the boys thought it would be fun to create a Pad Thai / Peanut noodle version of “Night Cereal.” Pad Thai is one of their favorites dishes, and what goes better with milk and cereal than a little peanut butter? this was definitely going to be a culinary experience!

to start our culinary cuisine, we needed our hero ingredients! ice cold milk and Corn Chex cereal. you definitely can’t eat cereal without milk.

the rest of the ingredients are pretty simple. besides the milk and Corn Chex cereal, we also needed Thai rice noodles, scrambled egg, bean sprouts, shredded carrots, chopped green onions, and a special peanut Pad Thai sauce.

we filled our bowls with cereal, and then stacked the noodles, bean sprouts, carrots and scallions on top. we also sprinkled some of the scrambled egg around.

next, we added a special peanut Pad Thai sauce over the top. it is a mix of onions, butter, soy sauce, Siracha, peanut butter and apple cider vinegar. i have included the recipe below. this sauce is really yummy!

finally, to finish off our “Goodnight Cereal” we had to top it off with milk. as the boys say, milk and cereal are best friends!

now it was time to try our creation. i must say, it actually was good! you probably wouldn’t expect it, but it tastes almost like our favorite Pad Thai. the Corn Chex added a great crunch, and milk tastes great with peanut butter.

    At first I was afraid (I was petrified) of this, because I love Thai food so much. But it actually looks and sounds quite good! Definitely going to try this out for myself.
