Tips for Cooking Hot Cereals

March 5, 2008

Bowl of Raisin OatmealI had such a hard time getting my grandson to eat his oatmeal or cream of wheat. I finally shook a little colored sugar sprinkles on top and poof, the oatmeal was gone. Each time we have hot cereals, I pick a different color and just sprinkle enough to make it pretty!

Eat shredded wheat as a hot cereal, especially, maple and brown sugar flavor. All you have to do is mix a lot of the cereal with not so much milk, add sugar to your taste, then microwave it, and stir it up.

We had always boiled the water first and stirred in the hot cereal. I've discovered you can avoid lumps if you don't boil the water first, but instead put the right amount of water in the pan then put in the right amount of cereal before turning on the heat.

When I was a kid, I never minded the lumps that come with cooking MaltoMeal or Cream of Wheat, but some do. So I realzed one of the reasons the lumps happen if the water is boiling when we pour it in, usually all in the same spot.
