My grandmother used to make this breakfast for me whenever I'd sleep over. It's a warm, smooth, and creamy bowl of goodness.
Servings: 4 cups
Ingredients
  • 4 cups whole milk
  • [1/2] cup farina
  • [1/2] tsp. salt
  • 3 TB. sugar
  • 3 TB. butter
  • 3 TB. pine nuts
Instructions
  1. In a large saucepan over medium heat, bring whole milk to a simmer, and cook for about 4 minutes. Do not allow milk to scorch.
  2. Whisk in farina, salt, and sugar, and bring to a slight boil. Cook for 2 minutes, reduce heat to low, and cook for 3 more minutes. Stay close to the pan to ensure it doesn't boil over.

  4. Meanwhile, in a small pan over low heat, cook butter and pine nuts for about 3 minutes or until pine nuts are lightly toasted.
  5. Evenly spoon butter and pine nuts over each bowl, and serve warm.
