Here’s a quick and easy new way to warm up in the morning: simmer cooked bulgur with some milk before folding in cheddar cheese and piling it into a bowl. After you've nestled a poached egg on top, garnish everything with a dash of hot sauce and a sprinkle of fresh cilantro and enjoy your complete breakfast-in-a-bowl.


  • 2 cups cooked bulgur

  • 1 cup milk (or milk alternative)

  • Pinch kosher salt

  • ½ cup grated cheddar

  • 2 poached eggs, for serving

  • Chopped fresh cilantro and hot sauce, for serving


  1. Combine grains, milk, 1 cup water, and salt in a pot. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium and simmer, stirring, until creamy, 15 to 18 minutes. Stir in cheese. Transfer to bowls and top with eggs, cilantro, and hot sauce before serving.
