In blender, mix milk, and wheat at high speed for 2 minutes. Continue blending as you add milk, baking powder, oil, eggs, and salt. Bake in waffle iron and serve with your favorite toppings. Batter can also be used for pancakes. (This recipe and the next one are fun to make.)

SAUSAGE GRAVY (Travas Walker)

1 lb. Sausage

3 Tbsp. Flour

2 c. milk

Fry the sausage until brown, smashing the pieces as fine as possible, drain most of grease. Add the flour and stir into a paste. Add the milk and stir until thick, if too thick add more milk a tablespoon at a time to thin. For breakfast, serve over your favorite buttermilk biscuits or fried potatoes. For lunch, serve over toast or fried potatoes. For dinner, serve over fried potatoes or filling/stuffing. 
Variation: omit sausage and use 3 Tb butter or margarine and 2 chicken or beef boullion cubes.



1/4 cup margarine

3 cups old-fashioned oats

1/2 cup sliced almonds (optional)

6 Tb. brown sugar

2 Tb. raw sunflower seeds

1 cup raisins

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Place margarine in a 9X13 inch baking pan; heat in oven until melted. In a large bowl mix together old-fashioned oats, sliced almonds, brown sugar, and sunflower seeds. Pour into baking pan and toss with margarine. Bake for 20 minutes or more until golden brown. Stir once while baking. Add raisins. When cooled, store in an airtight container for up to one month or freeze.
Note: This is a great recipe to use with your dry-packed oats. It is easy and good and you can add  more ingredients or leave plain--whatever suits your family.
