Help with a childhood favorite (cream of wheat)

This shouldn't be difficult since there are only two ingredients. Still, not sure where to start.

Mom used to fix cream of wheat combined with Campbell's condensed cream of mushroom soup. It had a consistency like thick oatmeal.

I need suggestions on how to recreate this. (Yep, have zero cooking skills!)

Follow soup directions, then add uncooked cream of wheat?

Also prepare cream of wheat, then mix with diluted soup?

Just not sure.

Thanks,

Sorry, I'm no help at all. Cream of Wheat with C of M soup? That's new to me!

I remember it fondly as a child with milk, sugar, and a pat of butter.

Hold tight though, someone will come along with another response.

I have the makings and could experiment.

Probably take a few attempts to get something close.

Thanks,

I'd start with soup. Then add cw. But very little. It puts up really fast.

I've never heard of it, either. We had it similar to what Kayelle mentioned, with milk, sugar, and butter, and sometimes cinnamon.

I'd follow Charlie's suggestion and add the cream of wheat to your warmed up cream of mushroom soup.

Heat up the soup and put no more than 4 tablespoons cream of wheat.

This is a new one on me too. We ate it with milk and brown sugar.

I wish we did not have that silly time limit on editing. I meant to say "Puffs" up.
You'd have experiment with how much CW to add, until you get right consistency. 4 table spoons sound like way too much.

According to the box, it is 3 tablespoons per cup of liquid.

I knew what you meant, Charlie. For one can of soup, 4 TBLSP of Cream of Wheat sounds like way too much to me, too.
