    Default What do you do with old hot cereal?

    We've just started adding it our bread, works great. I've also added it to soups/stews and pancakes.

    Am I missing a great idea here? We don't fry it, as we're both > 50 and don't need the fat.

    Thanks!

    You mean something like leftover oatmeal? If there's enough for a serving I just keep it in the fridge and reheat it the next day in the microwave.
    Stop trying to organize all of your family’s crap. If organization worked for you, you’d have rocked it by now. It’s time to ditch stuff and de-crapify your world.

    If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it into a closet.

    Use it up, Wear it out,
    Make it do, Or do without. ~unknown

    Because we, the people, have the power to build a better future. KH

    I nuke it and eat it.

    In fact, I always cook extra so I won't have to stop and cook more the next day.

    If you blenderize it with the liquid you are using to make pancakes, waffles, yeasted or quick breads, it hides itself as to be unnoticed!! Sneaky way of adding some whole grains.

    I cook extra and put it into a loaf pan. When it's cold, slice it and fry it. You don't have to use much oil or butter if you let it get good and hot.

    I also put it through the blender and then in pancakes, waffles or other baked goods.

    I like the idea of meatloaf. You could also do meatballs.

    How about a crumble topping of some sort? Recipe might need tweaking but it should work.
