Reuse Plastic Cereal Bags for Pounding Cutlets

Reuse Plastic Cereal Bags for Pounding Cutlets

When making cutlets, use the emptied plastic bags from inside cereal boxes to pound the meat flat. The bags just need a quick rinse and are ready to use. Cereal bags are sturdier than plastic wrap or resealable plastic bags, and they’re less likely to tear as you do your pounding. Plus, it's a great way reuse something that was bound for the trash can — and it saves you money!
