I thought I’d share my new favourite breakfast with you today.
I’m not much of a breakfast person, I’d rather eat lunch around 10:30. But my Mum always told me that I needed to eat my breakfast. She was the one who introduced me to this.
When I was in school we had oatmeal basically every morning. Water and oats, some brown sugar and usually canned peaches on top. Not the most appetizing and by high school I hated it. But it was good for me.
So as soon as I was a grownup and chose my own own breakfast I just stopped eating it. Or ate it sporadically. Not good, I know.
This winter I was cold and starving quite a bit so breakfast became a necessity. Enter the Amazing Oatmeal.
I’m serious, it’s stinking awesome!
Plus I’ve been having some issues with too much milk consumption and this only has a dash while still being incredibly creamy and delicious.
I make mine in the microwave but I’m sure you could do it stovetop.
For 1 serving
1/4 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup + a bit water
Microwave for 1:30 minutes
While that’s in the mic
dash of milk
In small bowl beat them well.
When the oat mix is done it should be a little runny, stir well and add the egg mix. Stir well again.
Put back into the mic on half power for another 1:30. I don’t know how to do half power on my microwave so I use Speed Defrost and that seems to work just fine.
While the egg mix is cooking pull out some craisens, brown sugar, ground flax and my Crab Apple Butter-ish.
When the oatmeal is finished cooking pull it out and stir well.
1 tsp brown sugar
1 tbsp ground flax
a handfull of craisens
a scoop or two of Crab Apple Butter-ish, or Canned Peaches if you want to be traditional :)
It is delightfully creamy and kind of desertish without having too much milk in it. I love it!
I hope you will too.
