Kitchen Tip Tuesdays: Cream of wheat
I love cream of wheat (aka Malt-O-Meal, farina cereal, bear mush, etc.)... even though I can eat a huge bowl and still be hungry 2 hours later. ;) "Bear mush" (as we called it) was one of my favorite winter breakfasts as a child.
I don't, however, like cream of wheat made with water. The instructions usually say to use water, but I like it much much better when I use milk instead of water in the recipe. I also use a little salt. After I spoon the hot cereal into my bowl, I add a spoonful of brown sugar and a little more milk (cold, from the jug). Yummy!! :)
Buying a box of cream of wheat cereal can be rather pricey at a regular grocery store -- even at Aldi's. I get mine at bulk foods stores, where it's very affordable. Sometimes the bags come without instructions, so I copied instructions from a box at the store! ;)
