Just When You Thought There Could Be No More

If it were possible to make this dish as healthy as can be achieved, I have also found an alternative recipe. I will soon be celebrating my 54th birthday soon, so I will be needing to watch carefully as to what I eat. I still consider myself a young man, I have come to the realization that I must start monitoring my health a bit more than I have in the past. So, for those in the same boat as me, below is a recipe, which might alleviate some of the guilt of indulging in such a rich, but undeniably satisfying treat.

corn flake fried cheesecake

Corn Flake Fried Cheesecake
1 slice frozen cheesecake
1 c. buttermilk
1 c. Cornflakes crumbs
Peanut oil (for frying)
Defrost cheesecake slightly. Dip into buttermilk; lift to drain excess liquid. Roll into Cornflakes
Crumbs, pressing slightly to coat cheesecake completely. Refreeze for at least two hours.
