Shredded Wheat - Fried in Butter!

Last weekend we were able to go visit my in-laws. My mother-in-law is a great cook and made us something new for breakfast that we really liked (something that her mom used to make when she was a kid) - and our kids ate it without hesitation (miracle!) It is not new to her - her mom made it for her when she was a kid.

You buy some shredded wheat - the big kind, not the bite size kind (which can be hard to find in some stores.) Warm some milk in a pan, and soak the shredded wheat in it just long enough to soak all the way to the middle. Then fry the shredded wheat in a pan with some melted butter until the outside of the shredded wheat is golden brown. The outside will be crispy, and the inside will still be wet with the milk.

To serve, put shredded wheat in your bowl, sprinkle with sugar, and top with warm milk and fresh fruit.
