Cream of wheat was just so so, until I discovered that mixing it with canned pumpkin and adding some real butter and maple syrup took it up a few notches. Cream of wheat is also great in savory dishes with stuff like cheese, eggs, peas, onion, etc.

I grew up with it, so I like it, but haven't had it for a long time. I also like grits, and most corn, and grain based foods like these.

I’ll try pumpkin! I have used CoW (I call it farina) as a side dish with butter and just a small wisp of curry powder when I make an Indian entree.

I grew up eatting CoW too, so I love it. I have just tried grits, living in Florida now, and I see no difference. I love them too. A touch of sugar and cream, yum.

I love Cream of Wheat! Actually grew up on the Farina brand. Just had some CoW last week. I like mine plain, with just a small pinch of salt added when cooking, and eaten with milk poured on top.

I also like oatmeal, cooked the same way, with just a tiny pinch of salt, and eaten the same way.

I just like my cereals plain - no sugar added. That's how I was raised and it stuck with me, I guess!

I love cream of wheat.

Butter, milk and cream or milk mixed in, it's yummy..

I do the same with grits, it's earned me a few strange looks in the South..

Don't put ketchup on your scrambled eggs in the South, the waitress will have apoplexy.

When out for breakfast, I usually order sunny side up (over easy) eggs, and just splash a little Tabasco on them. However, if I make scrambled eggs at home I do usually put ketchup on them, but it is in the privacy of my home.

I had a cousin who used to put ketchup on pancakes. Now THAT is sacrilegious!

Dad used to make it for breakfast for me. Comfort food!


I eat it the same way picklejuice and K of A like it along with some buttered toast.


Fried eggs with ketchup, not scrambled. Break the yolk and squash that sucker flat!


What were you, born in a barn?
