Do you like Oatmeal? Hot cereal? This is another great recipe handed down. Doesn't matter how old you are, when you are sick you want your Mom! Recently while being sick and not having much of an appetite, I remembered this hot cereal my mom made us girls while growing up. It's quick, comforting and sweet (But not too sweet ;) ) My mom always made this with Broiled Cinnamon Toast .... you will love it and so will the kids.
- In a medium saucepan -- bring water and 1/2 Tbl butter to boil.
- Add rice and stir to combine. Remove from Heat and cover 5 minutes.
- Add sugar and 1/2 Tbl butter, stir to combine.Serve in your favorite cereal bowl, add milk and sprinkle with cinnamon Sugar mixture.
My mom used to fix this all the time. We ate it at least once a week...sometimes more.
I ate this growing up, too. My mother used regular rice, though. I still make it for myself whenever I'm home alone and craving comfort food. I add a touch of vanilla extract to it too. We didn't eat it for breakfast, we ate it for dinner.
