  1. I have never had bulgar before; I found this hard to swallow. I put more cinnamon and vanilla and I still don’t have any connection to apple pie. I also used the Greek yogurt and walnuts.

    haha i saw this on doctor oz and i really wanna try it, how long do i let the bulgar soak ? is overnight too much ? Also do i have to drain it all before putting it in the microwave ? thanks ! this breakfast idea sounds so yummy, only if i could just get it right (x

    1. Hi Gabrielle. First of all use quick-cooking bulgur. Soak it for about 10 minutes. Don’t drain the water. Then add apples and vanilla. Stir. Cover bowl and heat in the microwave for 5 minutes. Add toppings if you like. Hope that helps! -Amy

    You are a genius! We tend to eat steel cut oatmeal with fresh fruit and nuts for breakfast. This was easier and reminded us of apple crisp. We are new fans of
    bulgar. Thanks! We give it ten stars.
