Cream of Wheat
1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup half & half
2/3 cup cream of wheat (*Yellow Box 10 minute cook time)
Bring milk & cream to a simmer.
Slowly add wheat while stirring constantly.
Simmer 5 to 10 minutes or until thick.
Remove from heat.
Add pinch of salt, 1 tablespoon butter & 2 tablespoons sugar and stir in.
You can alter butter and sugar to your liking.
* If you can't find the yellow box, then the red box 2 1/2 minute cook time would be my next choice.
It may not be quite the same ,but it'll still be good.

Steel Cut Oats

In a large saucepot, melt the butter and add the oats. Stir for 2 minutes to toast. Add the boiling water slowly and reduce heat to a simmer. Keep at a low simmer for 30 -40 minutes, without stirring to often. Check to see if oats are done. They will be chewy but not mushy. Add a little salt,cinnamon, brown sugar & butter. Enjoy!
Steel cut oats may also be called Pinhead Oats or Irish Oats. Most Natural food stores sell them bulk , and that
means a lot cheaper then already in a container on a supermarket shelf.
