Vegetarian Roast | Special K Loaf Recipe

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!

Vegetarian Roast- Special K Loaf Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1/2 chopped onion
  • 1- 24oz container of cottage cheese
  • 1 ½ packets of George Washington seasoning/broth (may be substituted for 1/2 packet onion soup mix, but to make the best version of this dish G. Washington seasoning/broth is the way to go)

  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 3 1/2 cups Special K cereal 
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

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 seasoning/broth or 1/2 packet of onion soup mix. I hate to do it because it changes the dishes flavor. It can be a little hard to find George Washington seasoning/broth, but you can find 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!

  1. 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!

  2. 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 🙂
