Savory Cream of Wheat

In my early 20's, I lived with some southern belles in Alaska! They were crazy for grittes with butter and cheese, but they couldn't find grittes in Alaska - so they would cook up a batch of Cream of Wheat and add butter and cheese. I loved the result and have passed it on to my husband and sons who also love this savory treat whenever they get the munchies. Give it a try and you'll agree; desperation is the true mother of invention!

Ingredients

How to Make Savory Cream of Wheat

Step-by-Step

  1. Using a wire whip, gradually whip cereal into the boiling water. Stir constantly.
  2. Reduce the heat and allow to boil until thick. Only takes a few minutes.
  3. Add shredded cheese and butter. Any favorite cheese will do, but I prefer sharp cheddar.
  4. Serve immediately. Makes two medium size bowls. This recipe multiplies well 3 or 4 times the original.
