  • 2 and 1/2 cups water
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 2 cups quick oats
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup half and half
  • butter and brown sugar - for serving

In a medium saucepan, bring the water and salt to a boil. Slowly, stir the oats and let the water return to a rolling boil. Immediately, reduce heat to a simmer. Stir in the cinnamon and sugar and continue to cook on low for 1 minute.

Add the half and half, stir and cook 2 minutes more - or until oats are at your desired consistency.

To serve, distribute oatmeal among 4 serving bowls and top each serving with a sprinkle of brown sugar and a pat of butter.

  • 3 and 1/2 cups water
  • 3/4 cup chopped dried apricots
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (optional) 2 cups Quaker Oats (quick or old fashioned
  • uncooked)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

After making this oatmeal twice, I've adjusted the recipe a little bit. It originally called for 1/2 cup of chopped dried apricot. I've increased that to 3/4 cup because the apricot flavor isn't very noticeable at the lesser amount. You could even do a full cup as the dried fruit softens to really nice texture in the boiling water. Besides that, I added brown sugar and vanilla and bumped up the cinnamon a notch. With these changes (reflected in the ingredients above), I think you'll find this a flavorful, heart-healthy way to start your day.

  • 1/2 cup quick cooking or Old Fashioned oats
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 handful of raisins
  • 8 to 10 walnuts
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 Tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 medium ripe banana - thinly sliced (optional)

March 18th is National Oatmeal Cookie Day. I decided to have my oatmeal cookie in the form of oatmeal. Granted, I did also eat those actual oatmeal cookies that are shown in the pictures. All in all, I liked this oatmeal. It reminded me of an oatmeal cookie and I guess that was the point. So... success! (Recipe tested March 2013)

  • 2 cups cooked oatmeal (plain or flavored)
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar - for topping
  • 3/4 cup seasonal berries - for topping

Follow package directions to make oatmeal.

(If using Old Fashioned oats, it's 2 parts water to 1 part oats with a pinch of salt for each serving. Add oats to boiling salt-infused water, reduce heat to simmer and cook 5 to 6 minutes).

Pack the oatmeal in a small greased loaf pan and refrigerate until it can be turned out in a solid mass - overnight or at least 4 hours.

Gently, invert the oat loaf onto a cutting board and cut it into 3/4-inch slices.

Melt butter in a medium frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook each side of each slice to golden brown - about 4 minutes per side.

Top with berries and a generous sprinkle of sugar.

  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 banana - mashed
  • 1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips

In a saucepan, bring water and salt to a boil. Reduce heat to low and stir in the oats. Simmer 5 minutes uncovered, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat, cover, and let stand 3 minutes. Stir in brown sugar, banana and chocolate chips.

Note From Mr Breakfast::
I recently tried this recipe (May 15, 2013) and thought the flavor combination of bananas and chocolate was dynamite. Thanks to 'caroline' for the submission! The only thing I changed was to use less than brown sugar. I found that 1 or 2 Tablespoon of brown sugar is all you need. Any more and the oatmeal is too sweet. My advice is to mix everything together as stated... except for the sugar. Then at the end, add brown sugar a Tablespoon at a time until it has the perfect sweetness for you.
