The batch worked great. It dried out a bit more which I think I like better.

I like to add a little honey (I have a massive sweet tooth). Raisins are also good, the plump while you cook them :).

Yes....flavor like you would oatmeal. I love mine with raisins, I put them in the pot at the end just before covering the pan with the lid and let them steam with the bulgur. Of course you could use any fruit you like. Chopped apple & nuts are good too.

Ooo! i hadn't thought of bulgur for breakfast! Do you flavor it like you would oatmeal, cinnamon, fruit, etc?

I think I will give that a try as well, getting tired of oats and cream of wheat.

It re-heats wonderfully and freezes great cooked too.

Thanks Laura! I'll give it a try tonight.

DS9KIE I actually can't eat regular cooked oatmeal it makes me sick. Steel cut was starting to make me nauseous. The bulgur doesn't seem to have that effect, and it is yummy! I highly recommend it.

So on Saturday I decided to get and try bulgur as opposed to my usual steel cut oats. It was great! It doesn't have the "slime" associated with my other oat meals. The flavor is really good and I didn't need to add much to made it super yummy!

So my question is can I make it in large batches and re-heat it like the steel cut oats or will it get gross?

Thanks!
