Want to know the trick to cooking cheerios so their skins don’t split? Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil. Once boiling, turn the element off and place your cheerios in the pan. Place the lid back on the pan and leave the cheerios to stand for 10 minutes. Once the 10 minutes are up, drain the cherries and leave to cool for a few minutes before serving with tomato sauce. Yummy!
