Reviews for Butterscotch Oatmeal
"very good and easy to make"
"Excellent.Why not an egg?"
"We really like this oatmeal. I do half the sugar and it is still plenty sweet. I also add about a quarter cup more oatmeal so it is a little bit thicker. I want to try it with apples in the fall, maybe raisins too."
"super yummy...and yes the egg makes a difference. The creamy texture is very soothing and a welcome treat on cold mornings; a soothing treat; or a simple comfort food when my little 1's are under the weather. We don't use pre-packaged food in our diet, so the brown sugar was not an issue for me. There are many ways to cut down on extra sugars in 1's diet without denying one's self the yumminess of brown sugar. ;-) Just my take on it, to each their own."
"This is a delicious treat and quite hearty. It stuck with me all morning. Thanks!"
"This oatmeal is so good!! I put in almonds and chopped apples...delish!!!"
"Way too much sugar and why an egg? Just put a little brown sugar and a dab of butter on your bowl of oatmeal instead. Same butterscotch flavor. Have an egg on the side!"
"This oatmeal is so tasty and easy to make. I just love it!"
"I was dissapointed with the flavor, definatly not butterscotch. I like the original version much better."
"Just as a note to a previous review. The term butterscotch is usually given to things that are sweetened with brown sugar.Brown sugar is the main ingredient in 'butterscotch' recipes..You are probably referring to the artificial butterscotch flavoring most people are used to."
"I was out of instant oatmeal and my kids wanted oatmeal.This recipe was so go and simple I had everything on hand. I will never need to buy expensive instant oatmeal again."
"Wonderful! if you like raisins or apples you can add them too. Don't know where the author got the term Butterscotch in the title cuz nothing in this recipe is like butterscotch but it is really good! Might try less brown sugar as oatmeal is very sweet."
