    Dry milk 2/3 Cup (16 tbs)
    dry yeast
    All purpose flour 5 1/2 Cup (16 tbs)

    Vegetable oil 1/4 Cup (16 tbs)

    In large bowl blend cereal, dry milk, salt, yeast and 3 cups flour.
    Add honey, oil, molasses and water.
    Stir to mix; beat 60 strokes.
    Blend in remaining 2 1/2 cups flour.

    What do you think they mean by 'cereal?'

    Depends. What is the source? Roman Meal does make several cereal mixes.

    I found this recipe on the Roman Meal website:

    Home Made Bread

    2 cup Roman Meal Original w/Oats
    2/3 cup non-fat dry milk
    1 tbsp salt
    2 pkgs active dry yeast
    5 cup all-purpose flour (divided)
    1/3 cup honey
    1/4 cup vegetable oil
    1 tbsp molasses
    2-½ cup very warm water (115°-120°)

    In large bowl blend cereal, dry milk, salt, yeast and 3 cups of the flour. Add honey, oil, molasses and water. Stir to mix; beat 60 strokes.

    Blend in remaining 2 cups flour.

    On lightly floured board, kneed dough until it feels springy (about 5 minutes), adding just enough flour to hands and board to prevent sticking.

    Grease bowl; return dough to bowl, turning once to grease top.

    Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled (about 1 hour).

    Punch down and turn dough over. Cover and let rise 30 minutes.

    Form into 2 loaves and place in well-greased 9x5x3-inch loaf pans.

    Brush oil on tops of loaves; cover and let rise until doubled (about 45 minutes).

    Bake at 400° F for about 35 minutes. Remove from pans and cool on rack.

    The description is:
    A hearty blend of whole grain wheat, oats, rye, wheat bran
    and ground flax seed.

    You can probably find a multigrain blend close to that.

    I'm thinking the recipe you found is not a Roman Meal clone, Amber, it seems to be a different wholemeal bread you can make from the Roman Meal cereal. Original RM bread contains, "Coarse whole wheat flour, water, yeast, sugar, enriched flour [wheat flour, malted barley flour, niacin, ferrous sulfate (iron), thiamine mononitrate (vitamin B1), riboflavin (vitamin B2), folic acid], vital wheat gluten, whole grain wheat flakes, calcium sulfate, whole grain rye flakes, soybean oil, honey, salt, dough conditioners (contains one or more of the following: monoglyceride, sodium stearoyl lactylate, azodicarbonamide, enzymes, calcium peroxide, ascorbic acid), molasses,calcium propionate (mold inhibitor), ground flax, calcium carbonate, yeast nutrient (ammonium sulfate, monocalcium phosphate), vitamin D, soy lecithin.contains; wheat, soy."

    The one big difference is that the commercial bread appears to use whole wheat flour, the recipe does not. The commercial one does contain many of the grain flakes, although I don't think I saw the oat flakes.. The recipe might be a decent starting point.
