A tasty new way to serve your cream of wheat! If you like it sweeter just add some additional sugar.

UmmmMmmm...yummy! DH and I enjoy having hot cooked cereal for breakfast in the mornings, but sometimes they get to be humdrum. This certainly was not that! Although it took a little more effort than plain jane cereal, it was worth every bit of it. The only thing I will do differently the next time is to cook it on the stovetop, rather than in the microwave as we just don't care for cereal cooked in the microwave as well as on the stovetop, but we sure do like to use milk to replace the water! I suspect this would also be good in oatmeal, cream of rice and probably even malt-o-meal (my favorite!). Thank you for a great idea Michelle.
