This was handed down through the German women of my family for many years and before it is forgotten I want to share it, so that it will live on. It was served during the holidays but quickly became as a side dish. Simple to make. An uncle of mine would come up from North Carolina during deer season and stop by my mom's home to get a hugh helping and then ask for some in a bowl to take with him for his hunting trip.

(stir during this time). 3.)take white bread and brake into pieces, place into hot liquids pressing bread down into hot liquid with a large spoon. Note:Do not mash bread just simply press it down. If you must stir do this slowly if you stir too much it will become mush. 4.)bring to a boil for about 5min...turn heat on low at this stage 5.) When bread becomes fluffy it is done. Garnish with a cinnomon stick.(optional) Best served slightly hot.)
