One of my favorite winter breakfasts as a kid was forina, aka Uncle Ben’s Cream of Wheat. I loved mine with a dash of chocolate.

This, surprisingly, tastes a bunch like forina – it has a nice hearty texture, a really light sweetness, and feels stick-to-your-ribs. I’m willing to bet it’s even great warm and with a little cacao.
