"We like the sweet cinnamony flavor of this instant oatmeal at our house," relates Robert Caummisar of Grayson, Kentucky. The mix makes it convenient to zap a bowl in the microwave for a speedy breakfast. If you like milk with your oatmeal, you can pour a little on top before serving.
"This thick satisfying oatmeal is wonderful when overnight guests visit for the holidays," suggests Ericka Willea, Twin Lake, Michigan. "We set up an 'oatmeal bar', offering a variety of fruits and nuts to top steaming bowlfuls."
“My family loves fruity flavored oatmeals like this one,” explains Renee Endress from Galva, Illinois. “I came up with this recipe when I had lots of blueberries on hand, and it became an instant favorite. Not only is it nutritious and filling, but it smells so wonderful and homey.” TIP: For a change of pace, try different fruits or flavors of nondairy creamer.
I like to prepare this baked oatmeal on weekend mornings when I have a little extra time," says Angela Higinbotham of Willis, California. "Even guests who typically don't like oatmeal fill their bowls with this hearty version, flavored with dried cranberries, brown sugar and cinnamon."
