I always add butter to it just like I do with grits. It gives it a little richness.

OK so because of this thread, I bought whole grain Cream of Wheat yesterday and made some last night.

It was DELICIOUS. All I put in it was butter and sugar (cooked it with milk of course, and a little salt).

Today I'm going to make some and try real maple syrup in it. Yum!

It's cold here so it seems very appropriate and comforting late in the evening.

At least you just bought one box. Because of this thread I bought 24 oz - 4 pack Bob's Red Mill White Wheat Farina, which reviewers say taste just like Cream of Wheat. I hope they're right because I hate wasting money or food, so I'll eat it anyway.

Haha! The whole grain Cream of Wheat is delicious by the way. Twice the fiber, for those who are counting, but the same taste. I love it and I think I'll have some more today!

Speaking of which, Bob's Red Mill has a 7 (and I think a 10) grain hot cereal that is super good.

I LOVE Cream of Wheat - best comfort food on a cold winter's evening! Make a big bowl of hot cream of wheat, add a bit of salt and a slice of butter, and sit yourself in front of the TV to watch an old 1940s movie.

We were out shopping Thursday. I had it listed in my notes "Get Cream of Wheat". Made it for breakfast yesterday.
