Favorite Breakfast Topping
This recipe has a crunchy millet topping. Have you ever tried millet? I only knew it as an ingredient in the bird food I use; but not long ago, I saw puffed millet at the health-food store. It was a cereal! I grabbed the box and turned it over to look at the ingredients and saw it had only one ingredient: millet. I started adding it to recipes—topping things with it—and my daughter Holli fell head over heels in love with it. Which is great because it’s gluten-free and has lots of magnesium.
If you can’t find puffed millet, there’s also puffed amaranth, which is almost the same texture. Or you can make your own, just like you would popcorn. All you have to do is put a cup of millet in a medium-sized saucepan with a lid, place it over medium-low heat, and shake it around every once in a while. Soon enough you’ll start to hear the grains popping. Once the popping begins, it takes about 15 to 20 seconds for all of it to pop. You’ll know when it’s done because the popping stops abruptly.
