Minnesota Hot Cereal

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.



I’m a married mother of 3. Who loves living in Minnesota, prep ahead cooking, and couldn’t live without them now. No more worries about the age old question “What’s for Dinner?”. I am also transitioning my family into the slow food and clean eating movement. I believe it’s best if we can eat food in it’s most natural state. I love to share the information I have been gaining through this whole experience. I’m also a trained personal chef. Cooking is a passion and hobby of mine. Hope your are enjoying the content of my blog.
