Notes I call this Thai food for meat-and-potatoes guys. Spice it up with a generous douse of hot sauce at the end. To coat the turkey, any of these cereals has the right flavor: General Mills Wheaties, Whole Grain Total, Total Corn Flakes, Country Corn Flakes; Post Toasties; Kellogg's Corn Flakes, Toasted Corn Flakes.


8 ounces spaghetti or linguine

1 large egg

2 tablespoons milk

1-1/2 cups crushed cereal

1 pound turkey cutlets

3 tablespoons vegetable oil

3 green onions, cut into 1-inch pieces

1 large carrot, sliced thin

1 cup chicken broth

1/4 cup crunchy peanut butter

1 tablespoon light teriyaki or soy sauce

1. Cook the spaghetti according to the package directions; drain and place in a large bowl.

2. Meanwhile, beat the egg and milk in a shallow dish. Place the cereal in another shallow dish or on waxed paper. Dip the turkey cutlets into the egg mixture and coat well with the cereal.

3. Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add the turkey cutlets, in batches, and sauté for 3 to 4 minutes, or until browned on both sides and cooked through. Transfer to a cutting board; cut into thin strips and keep warm.

4. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil in the skillet; add the onions and carrot and sauté for 3 to 4 minutes, or until the carrot is crisp-tender. Add to the drained spaghetti; toss well. Keep warm.

5. Put the chicken broth, peanut butter, and teriyaki sauce in a skillet; bring to a boil over medium heat.

6. To serve, arrange the pasta on 4 serving plates; layer on the strips of turkey, and top with the peanut sauce.

A Late Show Pick-Me-Up
Ever wondered how Jay Leno keeps it up night after night? Cereal with water, of course. During a show I actually saw him leave the stage, head for the water cooler, and top off a bowl of cornflakes. They admitted on national TV that he does this during every show, and proved it with cameras rolling.
