Red River cereal has been around since Adam was a pup. Maybe longer. I have never seen any real earthly use for the stuff. I only know of one human being on this planet who actually eats this stuff in its intended form. Then again, Bob is not your ordinary guy. Just incredibly regular, I'd bet.
Combine the cereal and hot water and let it sit in a measuring cup. I'd suggest a 2 cup one, as you're going to add some more stuff to it later.
Well, maybe not quite that long. But a considerable length of time.
True story - my grandfather used to feed black strap molasses to the cattle. When my mother or grandmother needed some, one of us would be fetched to the barn with a container to bring some to the house. It was considerably blacker than anything you can buy today, and stronger tasting. And yes, the 45 gallon drum was kept in the barn, right next to the stalls.
Moving right along.
Don't answer that, Bob.
Add a splash of water to that left over egg white and brush it all over the loaves. This is called egg wash. Not to be confused with whitewash, which is generally only found in agricultural applications. Sprinkle a little more cereal on top, just for effect.
It freezes well, just be sure to wrap it tightly in plastic wrap and foil. Oh, and clearly label it. Wouldn't want to confused this silver disc in you deep freeze with the UFO someone stashed there last week.
