Great recipe. I doubled the recipe and halved the butter and think I may use a quarter of it next time. I'm a millet newby and look forward to making this recipe again with some add-ins like sweet potato like another reviewer mentioned or mushrooms and onions or broccoli or cauliflower. I'm sure it would be delicious with just about anything. Thank for sharing this delicious recipe! : )
Delicious!! I quadrupled the recipe which filled a casserole dish and gave us leftovers to enjoy later. My husband and I both had seconds and my children enjoyed it too. We can’t have cow dairy so I used goat butter and goat milk and goat cheddar as well as goat mozzarella because I didn’t have enough if the cheddar. I cooked two diced sweet potatoes with the millet and used chicken broth instead of water which I do when I cook all of grains. I cooked some ground chicken separately and threw in some frozen spinach at the end and mixed everything together before putting it in the casserole dish. Such a yummy meal!
My husband's not a fan of millet so, looking for a way to use up the millet in my pantry, I found and tried this recipe. It tastes wonderful! I doubled it and used it as a main dish, sprinkling the finished product with some fresh thyme. My husband enjoyed it enough that I might be able to keep millet, which is a nutrient and protein dense cereal/grain, on my grocery list.<br/>Thanks for sharing!
