This recipe kind of reminds me of fried cornmeal mush, which was one of my favorite things to eat for breakfast growing up, especially topped with maple syrup. There's no added fat to the recipe and the baking produces a nice crust on the outside of the squares. They're not really squares, but could be if you used an 8"x8" square pan instead of a loaf pan. It's adapted from The McDougall Program for maximum Weight Loss.
Baked Millet Squares
1 cup millet
4 cups water
1/4 teaspoon salt
Rinse millet. In a saucepan, bring the millet, water, and salt to a boil. Reduce heat to low. Cover and cook for an hour or until all the liquid is absorbed. Pour into a loaf pan and press with a spatula. Refrigerate overnight to let it set up. In the morning, turn out onto a cutting board and slice 1/2" thick. Place on non-stick baking sheet and bake for a minimum of 45 minutes at 350 degrees F. I turn them over after 30 minutes so the other side dries, too. Serve this warm with jam, maple syrup, or your favorite fruit syrup.
Variation: Before putting in the loaf pan, stir in 1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, and about 1/4 cup sugar. You could probably get away with using apple juice in place of half of the water for sweetness instead of sugar. **I have not tried this variation yet
