Cream of Wheat

Cream of Wheat

Good ol’ cream of wheat was a staple food during my childhood. I’m not usually a fan of hot cereals but this is a bowl of thick creamy wheat-filled goodness! My sister & I Β grew up on the instant microwave packets but I must say this homemade recipe is a mighty improvement in both health & taste. Can’t go wrong with that right?! This is a simple & delicious breakfast to have on hand. If your anything like me I’m always looking for new ways to switch up my breakfast routine….now if only I can get my husband to love it as much as me πŸ˜‰


I have to admit I get a real thrill whenever I get to grind my wheat. I absolutely love the smell! Let’s just say making this breakfast started my day off just right.

Here is the recipe….happy eating everyone! πŸ™‚

Cream of Wheat
Recipe type: Hot Cereal
Serves: 4
  • 4 cups of milk (I used whole milk)
  • 1 cup of course wheat from hard red wheat berries (Mill on the course option on your grain mill)
  • 1 Tablespoon & a little more butter
  • ¼ cup sugar (It's on the sweet side so if you don't have a sweet tooth like me then reduce sugar or simply omit.)
  1. -Bring your milk to almost a boil
  2. -Add the wheat, butter & sugar
  3. -Use a whisk to stir constantly until it reaches a thick consistency
  4. -Serve warm πŸ™‚
*Leftovers can be kept in the fridge in an airtight container for a few days. Sometimes it can get a little thick with the reheating process and will need some splashes of milk to help thin it out.
