1 cup of rolled oats (I'm sure it doesn't matter but I use instant)
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 3/4 cups of milk
1/4 cup of brown sugar
pinch of salt
1 tablespoon (or so) of butter
Throw all except butter in a pot, turn it onto medium and cook to your hearts content. I literally cook this until it's dead (probably a good 15 minutes or so). Once you have cooked it until you feel it's done, remove from heat, add the butter and stir. I LOVE oatmeal that is really thick and then adding milk. The key is only separating little pieces so it's like chunks of thick oatmeal swimming in milk. Mmmmmmmm. I can't wait!
This is a supremely better option than those store bought ones. It has TONS less sodium and it tastes fantastic. Try it!
P.S. This recipe only feeds me and the 3 kids. We never make it with Kaye around because he thinks that oatmeal is a poor man's meal. Too bad for him....all the more for me! :)
