Instruction
  1. Follow conventional directions using 1/2 cup water or milk and 1 tbsp. plus 1 tsp CREAM OF WHEAT, omitting salt. (Cereal will be very thick.) After cooking, stir in infant formula or milk to desired consistency and temperature.
  2. Stovetop Directions: Bring water and salt to a boil. (Or, if using milk, just bring to a boil.) Gradually add CREAM OF WHEAT, stirring constantly with wire whisk until well blended. Return to a boil. Reduce heat to low; simmer uncovered 2-1/2 minutes or until thickened, stirring frequently. Cool slightly. Microwave Directions: Mix 3 tbsp CREAM OF WHEAT, 3/4 cup water or milk and a dash of salt in 1-quart microwaveable bowl or measuring cup. Microwave on HIGH 1 minute. Stir with wire whisk. Cook an additional 1 to 2 minutes or until thickened, stirring every 30 seconds. Stir again. Cool slightly. Note: Microwave ovens vary. Cooking times are approximate. Overheating can cause cereal to boil over. Tips for best results: When preparing with milk, watch carefully, stirring to prevent milk from boiling over. For thinner cereal stir in 1 to 2 tbsp additional hot water or milk for each serving. For thicker cereal, let stand a few minutes.
