9 Grain Porriage in the Crock Pot

9 Grain Cracked Cereal is a great addition to any food storage plan. It is super healthy containing spring wheat, winter wheat, soft white wheat, corn grits, barley grits, steel-cut oats, cracked rye, millet, flaxseed. It makes up into a delicious and super easy cereal.   A crock pot is essential.  You put it in before you go to bed and magically it is ready in the morning.

Pam Cooking Spray
2 cups 9 Grain Cracked Cereal
5 cups water
Salt-a dash
Spray the crock pot with cooking spray. Add cereal, water, and salt. cook on low for 7-9 hours.
In the morning when cooked try adding one of these options.  
*each crock pot is different. This is what works in mine you may need to adjust the cooking time or amount of water to work with how hot your crock pot cooks.

Sweet Stir in Options: I let my family decide so I have given the directions for individual servings.
  • Red Berry:  to each serving add 2 T each freeze dried strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, yogurt, and honey 
  • Apple-Cinnamon: To each serving  add 1 T. sugar, 1/4 t. cinnamon, and 2T. chopped dried apples. 
  • Cinnamon-Spice Oatmeal: To each serving add 1 T. sugar, 1/4 t. cinnamon, and a scant 1/8 t. nutmeg
  •  Raisins and Brown Sugar: To each serving add 1 T. packed brown sugar and 1 T. raisin
Savory Stir in Options:  I don't really like sweet things in the morning so here are some of the savory to try
  • Tomato and cheese (thanks for the idea Mom):  Add a handful of halved grape tomatoes and a tablespoon of Cream cheese. Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Southwest:  Add shredded cheddar cheese, and a 1/4 cup tomato salsa
  • Eggs and bacon:  Add a poached egg, and 2 T precooked crumbled bacon (or bacon TVP)
