Friday Foods – Fried Granola
Chilly fall mornings in the backcountry call for breakfasts that warm you from the inside. This unique twist on cold granola from A Fork in the Trail will start your day on the right foot.
Makes 2-3 servings
11⁄4 cups granola
1⁄2 cup freeze-dried mixed fruit 2 tablespoons butter
Enough nonfat powdered milk and water to make 1⁄2 cup milk
Put the granola in a ziplock freezer bag. Put the freeze- dried fruit in another bag and place that in with the granola. Pack the butter with the other butter that you will take on your trip. Do the same for the powdered milk.
Add a little cold water to the freeze-dried fruit and set it aside. Use the milk powder and water to make 1⁄2 cup of milk. Heat 2 tablespoons of butter in a pot or frying pan. When the butter is melted, add the granola and stir until it is hot. Add the freeze-dried fruit and mix until heated. Divide the franola into two servings and top with milk.
