Rolled Wheat Hot Breakfast Cereal

Rolled Wheat Hot Breakfast Cereal

I really love having a warm breakfast in the morning, but I’m not really a big egg fan. Mr. Man on the other hand, loves eggs, and would have them every day if he could, I think. I am, however, a fan of oatmeal – it’s one of my favorite quick & easy (cooked) breakfasts. This breakfast cereal however, is a really delicious and interesting alternative to Oatmeal. I picked up the Rolled Wheat at Whole Foods, although I’m sure there are a number of places that sell it. It looks a lot like Rolled Oats, only darker brown. When cooked, the texture is slightly chewier than regular oatmeal, and the flavor has a mild nutty tone. This recipe makes about 2 generous servings.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Cup Rolled Wheat
  • 2 Cups Milk
  • 1 tbls Butter
  • 2 tbls Brown Sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp Kosher Salt
  • 1/8 Cup Dried Blueberries, or other small dried fruit

Method:

  • In a medium sized saucepan, bring the milk and the butter to a low simmer over medium heat
  • Stir in Rolled Wheat, vanilla, sugar and salt
  • Reduce heat to medium low and simmer for about 15 minutes, or until most of the liquid has been absorbed
  • Stir in Dried Fruit and simmer until fruit and wheat is at desired tenderness
