Millet Porridge

Looking to add other grains to your diet? Try millet as a hot breakfast cereal. Note: I adopted this as an "authorless" recipe, as it was one I had tried and liked. I have changed the recipe from the original description that it made 2 servings; as I and both other reviewers at this time found that it really makes 1 serving. It can, however, be doubled very easily. I cook mine in my rice cooker which I recommend as a very easy way to make this.
