We have my 6 year old grandson for a sleepover this weekend.

Nana decided to introduce him to a breakfast favorite that was popular in their Hungarian Canadian household over 50 years ago.

Simple but fun and tasty.
Bring 2 cups of milk and a pinch of salt to a simmer and stir in 1/3 cup of Cream of Wheat.
Reduce heat and continue stirring 3-4 minutes until done.

Split contents between 2 large dinner plates and let spread to fill the plate bottoms. Sprinkle 1 Tabelspoon Nestle's Quik or more evenly over each plate.
Cocoa Powder can be substituted.

Now the fun part that we told him was called the "spiral journey of deliciousness"

Starting on the outside rim of the plate start slowly scraping the chocolate crusted cereal onto your spoon. Turning the plate as required while you stop to slurp the tasty mix from your spoon and continue working in slow decreasing circles towards the center of your plate.

My Grandson who has recently been rating meals on a # of Thumbs Up basis has declared this dish "Infinity Thumbs Up"

I will post the Hungarian name of this dish once I consult with my Hungarian MIL.
Update-Just spoke with Illona
They know it as Tejbegriz

Something tells me that this was not a dish that was brought over from the 'old country'.
Best,
Tom

That is exactly what I thought.
But Illona left in 1956 and tells me this was popular in Hungary in the 30's- 40's and 50's-made with Semolina with some variation in the topping-cocoa or cinnamon or Cukor.
The spiral method of eating served very thinly on a wide flat plate was something that she remembers as a little girl.
Perhaps served this way to make a small amount of food appear much larger.

If she left in '56, that was a difficult time as I remember. She was lucky to get out, huh? Or am I thinking of Czechoslovakia?
Best,
Tom

Very lucky to get out. They walked out with my wife's 3 year old first born sister on her husband's shoulders avoiding sniper fire. Her sister begged for them to stop because she had to pee. Sandor told his daughter "Just pee Honey. It is ok" and kept walking while pee ran down his back.
