Quaker Oats

A simple food, but sooo good for you! I love making oatmeal on a cool morning. There’s something comforting about a hot cereal when it’s chilly. I like the Old Fashioned Rolled Oats, because I like the texture. I’ve had the Quaker steel-cut oats and they’re good, but I’m not keen on the Instant varieties. Amber, at work, likes the Instant and it’s better for her than calorie-laden pastries. I’ve tried other brands, including Irish and Bob’s Red Mill multi-grain and I prefer Quaker.

How do I like my oats? Not overcooked and mushy! I like to start the water, add a bit of brown sugar, come Penzey’s Vietnamese cinnamon, and a handful of raisins; when the water boils, add the oats. It takes only five minutes to cook. You can even make it the night before and then nuke it for a minute or so in the morning. It’s tasty and satisfying.

Other combinations: add peaches or apples to the mix. Blueberries are good, too. Another excellent way to serve oatmeal – try baked!

Here’s the recipe:
3 c. Quaker Oatmeal
1/2 vegetable oil (I don’t use quite that much)
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup brown sugar (you can use less)
1 cup milk
2 eggs
1 teaspoon salt
Fruit of your choice

Beat eggs, oil, milk, and sugar together. Add dry ingredients. Stir in 1 cup chopped apples or blueberries, and pour into a square baking dish. Dust with cinnamon. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Serve with milk. It’s Yum-o!
