Minnesotans love a hot breakfast! Why not add a little wild rice to your oatmeal. This recipe is a winner.
Minnesota Hot Cereal
1/2 – 3/4 c. Oatmeal
1/4 c. Brown and Wild Rice Blend
1/4 c. Dried Fruit Mix (Cherries, blueberries, raisins, etc.)
2 T. Maple Syrup
1 & 1/4 c. Milk
Dash of salt
Steam the wild rice or boil it covered by 2 inches of water; it is ready when tender but pleasantly chewy, with many burst kernels, after about 45 minutes; drain rice.
Combine the oats with the dried cherries, salt, and 3 cups water in a saucepan; cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes, until soft and thick.
Stir in the wild rice and milk.
Serve steaming hot in large bowls, topped lightly with sugar or syrup.
