Wheat Bars and Sweedish Cheeseburger { Winston Salem, NC, Kernersville, Wedding Photographer }

I don’t know if it’s because of Father’s day recently passing or what, but I have been craving one of the things my dad used to make for us: Wheat bars. It was an old recipe from his days in Taunton High school that he had found somehow in the Daily Gazette.
I hardly understand why they are called wheat bars, it seems too healthy a name for a recipe with enough butter to make Paula Deen proud. It could be my dad’s name for them- he had a penchant for giving ordinary foods extraordinary names. He once invented a dish called “Sweedish Cheeseburger” My sisters and I awaited our fancy Sweedinsh dinner only to find out that it was ground beef with ketchup and cheese all cooked together. It didn’t matter though, maybe it was the magic of the name or maybe it was the MSG in the Ketchup, but Dad’s Sweedish cheeseburger remains one of our most treasured recipes to this day. I only make Wheat Bars about once a year, they are way to unhealthy to keep around- but when I do It brings me back to a time and place I’ll always miss.
Dad’s Wheat bars:
To make the Bars:
2 stick of butter
1. C brown sugar
1 c. Granulated sugar
2 eggs
2.5 c. Flour
2.5c oats
Mix all in food processor, and pack down tight into a large cookie sheet
Bake @350 for 30 mins
Melt  1 stick butter w. 1 bag semisweet chocolate chips in the microwave for a minute.
Stir well and spread over top of bars.
Cool cut and serve

  1. Hi there, I just wanted to say that growing up, wheat bars were a dessert in my household. We didn’t have them often, probably because of the reasons you stated. 🙂 however, I’m 25 now and a few years ago I wanted to make them. I asked my mom for the recipe, but she had always made them from memory and she no longer had it memorized so I had to google it. I searched for “wheat bars” and the only thing that came up was recipes for healthy protein-type bars. Like granola bars. Anyway, somewhere in the search I came across a lonely little page with the right recipe and wouldn’t you know – it was a website about Taunton High School, where both my parents went to school and where I grew up. Well, somewhere between then and now that website was taken down and I thought I had lost the recipe forever, but when I googled it again today your blog popped up and I read again how it’s a Taunton thing. Anyway, I know, long story… I just thought you might like to hear from somebody else that treasured these bars… And I too always think of my childhood when I eat them. Thanks for sharing the recipe… This time I’m going to write it down and put it in a safe.

    1. Hi!! I just want to say that your story made my Labor day weekend!! I cried when I read the comment, it is so touching to see someone else have such fond memories of a family favorite. It is amazing how food can really bring people together!!
