How to Make Casserole Toppings


  • 1Slightly crush up some Wheaties, add a little melted butter and sharp cheddar cheese, and your casserole has gone from ordinary to extraordinary! This topping is super versatile and can be used for potato, chicken or veggie casseroles.

    2 cups Wheaties cereal, slightly crushed
    1/4 cup butter, melted
    1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2Grind up some Cheerios in a food processor to a fine crumb consistency. Add some melted butter, garlic, and Parmesan and you have a delectable crumb topping that… smells like popcorn when you bake it? This one can be used to top saucy chicken casseroles.

    2 cups Cheerios cereal, finely crushed
    1/4 cup butter, melted
    1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
    1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
    1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
  • 3This topping is great for breakfast casseroles. Take your egg casseroles up a notch with some crispy bacon, cheese, and Wheat Chex cereal for some added fiber. It’s kind of like eating your eggs and cereal all at one time.

    2 cups cups Corn Chex or Wheat Chex cereal, whole
    1/2 cup cooked and crumbled bacon
    1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 4Not all casseroles have to be savory. Fiber One Caramel Delight cereal is a treat in itself … but adding some coconut, butter, and chopped pecans to it as a topping makes any dessert casserole out of this world. The coconut gets toasted to perfection in the oven. Watch out because I could definitely just scrape this off the top and eat it with a spoon. This topping is great for dessert, fruit, squash, or sweet potato casseroles.

    1 cup Fiber One Caramel Delight cereal, whole
    1/4 cup butter, melted
    1 cup shredded coconut
    1/2 chopped pecans
  • 5Swiss cheese pairs perfectly with veggies, so this topping is a perfect compliment to green bean or broccoli casseroles. A little garlic and Swiss cheese is tossed together with crushed Total cereal and sprinkled on top for a cheesy crunch.

    2 cups Total cereal, slightly crushed
    1/4 cup butter, melted
    1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
    1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
