Rye-teous Brekkie

A good Rye bread is hard to find.  Sometimes it just tastes like pretty plain bread.  This happened with our last loaf from Rudy's bakery.  I have no shame, I'll call them out.  They left my unsatisfied.  A good bread, but not nearly enough rye flavor.  Rye is a wonderful grain.  It's all sorts of healthy and tasty.  So why neglect the flavor?  Perhaps it was the caraway seeds that were missing in the bread.  Regardless, I wanted something different.  So I made a porridge that was to resemble a good slice of rye bread.

If that slice were gooey.

It was really delicious!  And the best part?  Incredibly simple.  Ah, good days ahead.

2 servings

1/2 cup rye flakes
1 1/2 cups milk
1/8 tsp salt
1 tsp molasses or 2 tsp dark brown sugar
1/4 tsp caraway or anise seed
1 TBS ground flaxseed
2 tsp margarine & 1 tsp sesame seeds to top

1. Mix the milk, rye flakes and flax seed in a medium pot over medium heat.
2. Let it cook for about 15-20 minutes...
...until it gets bubbly and thickens.
3. Mix in the rest of the ingredients except the margarine.
4. Serve into bowls and top with a one teaspoon of margarine and sunflower seeds

Totally rocks!
YUM!  Now I want more!!
