Favorite Breakfasts

My favorite breakfasts (that I make) are:

Croissant french toast
Multigrain blueberry pancakes
Popovers (smothered in butter and jam)
Hot Apple Cider Cereal

The last one I made this morning and it is SO good, and good for you, that I MUST share the recipe:

1 cup cracked wheat cereal
3.5 cups cider or apple juice
2 apples, peeled and chopped
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. cardamom
1/8 tsp. ground cloves
1 tsp. oil

Heat the oil in a pan, and add the cracked wheat, stirring to lightly toast it. Add cider and spices and apples and bring to boil. Simmer gently, covered, for 15-20 minutes. It will still seem soupy, but let it cool for 5 minutes. Pour a little milk or cream on it if desired. Makes 4-6 servings. Enjoy!

This can also be made with berry juice (blueberry, cranberry, etc.) and dried cherries instead of apples. I prefer the apple variety, but this is good too.
