Does anyone still cook up hot cereal for Breakfast?

Feeling nostalgic today...Made some Farina for breakfast. It was a favorite when mom made it for me in the 50's. Also loved Wheatina..and later when it came out Maypo(wasn't really a fan of Oatmeal so much.

    I make oatmeal.  Either Quaker Old Fashioned or Bob's Red Mill Scottish Oats.  I make both with some butter, cinnamon and maple syrup

    I'd love to make oatmeal for b'fast but, I never have enough time to do it right
    and sit down to enjoy it.

    I make a big batch of steel-cut oatmeal once a week. I refrigerate it, take a serving at a time, add milk and microwave.

    I make oatmeal, polenta and 10 grain cereal for my dad all the time. All made with milk and raisins.
    Oatmeal made on the stove cooked for about 20 min until fully hydrated and nice and creamy.
    The others come out good in the microwave, still takes about 15 min.
    A little brown sugar, banana or berries.
    I like these too but don't eat very often because they spike my blood sugar.

    That didn't take long and it's perfect for the way I feel.

    I also love oatmeal for dinner.  Just milk, butter and brown sugar. 
     
    Don't care for any of the instants although I do have them in the pantry.  Oh, occasionally I'll add sliced bananas if I have them.
     
    Love having steel cut oatmeal when I'm out at a restaurant but at home it's Quaker.
     
    My mother HATED oatmeal so I never had it as a kid.  I'm making up for it!

    I like oatmeal in the winter. I don't care for the instant or quick. Steel cut is OK, but ordinary rolled oats are, IMO, the best. The WalMart brand is just as good as the Quaker. Even the regular cooks quick in the microwave.
     
    My favorite use for oatmeal is as a topping for apple crisp

    Looks like most of you equate "hot cereal" with oatmeal. Any one eat anything else:Farina,Wheatina etc?

    I saw "Cream of Rice" the other day, when I was buying Farina. Anyone ever had that? Not "Cream of wheat" which is Farina, but Cream of Rice??

    Bring your water to a boil, add oats and seasonings. Go to bed. Wake up the next morning and temp the pot. Voila, 3 minute oats.

    I rarely have oatmeal, but I do have grits on a weekly basis. Not sure if folks would count that as a cereal, (I really don't), even though some do and they eat it as if it were oatmeal, with sugar and butter. Bleh! Oatmeal, and other related cereals, are really not my favourites.

    The picture of my hot cereal is Cream of Wheat.
     
    I only remember a hot rice cereal for babies.

    I eat Cream Of Wheat all the time.  I'm the only one in my family that will eat it so I pretty much do the instant packages now days.
