  Sesame seed 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Onion 1 Medium, chopped
  Small mushrooms/Large mushrooms 1⁄4 Pound, sliced (Whole)
  Butter/Bacon drippings 1⁄8 Pound (1/4 Cup)

Toast sesame seeds by placing them on a baking sheet in a 350° oven for about 5 minutes, or until golden and crunchy.
Saute onions and mushrooms in butter or bacon drippings over medium-high heat until onions are golden brown and mushroom liquid evaporates; use a frying pan that has a tight-fitting lid.
Add cracked wheat and sesame seed; cook and stir until wheat is coated with fat.
Add bouillon, water, parsley, and garlic cut in half and speared on a toothpick.
Stir until blended.
Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer slowly until the wheat is tender, about 15 to 20 minutes.
