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!
