Vegetarian roast made with Special K cereal. Delicious vegetarian Special K loaf recipe. Also known as cottage cheese loaf.

Growing up SDA this was my comfort food. On those cold New England nights my mom would make us this amazing vegetarian roast made with Special K cereal.

I could smell this delicious dish from my room and it would have me running downstairs asking if dinner was almost ready!

Although meat was not a staple in my home growing up, it has become semi normal in our own home now. But every once in a while we want a meatless night and even my meat eater of a husband likes this dish!

This is the perfect dish for a chilly night. It goes well with baked potatoes and a side salad. Now I love dipping things. (My pizza in garlic butter for example) And for me, this special k loaf is great for dipping in a little BBQ sauce. 

*Note- As I’ve mentioned above you can substitute the George Washington broth for ½ packet of onion soup mix or vegetarian chicken bouillon. George Washington seasoning/broth can be a little hard to find but they do sell it on Amazon, as I’ve linked for you above. 

I hope you like this vegetarian roast recipe made with special k cereal, as much as my family does!

    Yummmm…. My mother has made this for forever. Grateful that I am making it for her today. I love this recipe with rice crispies too!

      Rice Krispies! My kids would find that so fun, so we might just have to try that. Thank you for the suggestion!

    I’ve been making this exact roast for 40 years, my grown children still request it when I invite them over for dinner, the only difference is I add celery and use a mushroom gravy, I leave the nuts out because the aren’t crazy about them in this dish, as my little grandson says ” it’s the bomb”

    1. Becky that sounds delicious with the mushroom gravy! I completely agree with your grandson “it’s the bomb” and my children’s favorite as well.

    I have baked special K roast before, and I loved it. I also used vegetarian bouillon, and I am willing to try it again, seeing that I have not baked it for some time now. Thanks for sharing.

  4. I also grew up SDA and this is the ultimate comfort food for me!
    Lipton has a beefy onion soup mix. That’s what I use. I can’t say for certain if it’s *actually* vegetarian, but it does say artificially flavored and doesn’t list any animal products in the ingredients.
    To make it a bit richer, I brown the butter, toast the nuts, and caramelize the onions. It’s a bit extra effort, but I promise you it’s worth it!
    Thanks for sharing!

  5. The ingredients in the G Washington seasoning are disgusting. 99% chemicals plus onion powder. Why would u recommend that?

      Thank you so much for your feedback. George Washington Broth is a popular seasoning that can be found on Amazon and is enjoyed by many. However, everyones dietary needs and desire for ingredients differ. Perhaps you might be able to find your own substitute. Best of luck ~Sara

        Oh, what a great suggestion! We’ll have to give that a try next time it’s on our weekly menu. Thank you Brooke 🙂
