“With its mild maple flavor and crispy broiled topping, this oatmeal is comforting yet special. I often use dried cherries instead of the raisins and add star anise to spice it up a bit.” —Rose Ann Wilson, Germantown, Wisconsin

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 15, 2013

This is a delicious recipe and I will definitely will make it again. However, I will make it in my crockpot as it is so much easier that way. I cooked the oatmeal, milk, orange peel, and cinnamon stick in my crockpot on low overnight. In the morning, I completed the recipe. Cooking it on the stove took me 1 1/2 hours waiting for the milk to boil and cook the oatmeal. I used the dried cherries along with the craisins and it was delicious. I would give this dish 5 stars cooked in the crockpot.

Excellent- but I modified it of course. I used half of the maple syrup as other reviews said it was rather sweet. I also cut the raisins altogether and increased cranberries to 1 cup. I also just stirred in the brown sugar (also used less then recommended) instead of broiling it. Orange taste was subtle.

In the cold Minnesota winter this is a prefect start to the day!

Yum! I thought it might be tart since there was no sugar in the oatmeal, but the maple syrup and sugar on the top were more than enough. I actually might cut the sugar a bit next time. I agree that this recipe was a little more time consuming than I was expecting, but definitely good.
