Irish Oatmeal Brulee Recipe

“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

"<p>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.</p>"

"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."

"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."

"An excellent recipe! I LOVED the addition of the orange peel, that was my favorite part. I 1/4 this recipe, as I only wanted to make enough for my small family. I truly enjoyed breakfast this morning!"

"Very yummy; a nice treat. I used unsweetened coconut milk since I can't have dairy."

"First of all, this recipe is not "quick" as indicated at the top of the website. It takes 30 minutes to simmer the oats before eating, so be prepared to spend time over the stove. Plus, the oats need to be stirred about every 2-3 minutes so they don't stick to the bottom of the pan. All that said, this was a DELICIOUS breakfast and well worth the wait. I would consider making this one of our Saturday morning specials in the winter months. I love the subtle taste from the orange peel, and the brown sugar brulee is the perfect topper to sweeten it up. Because I have lactose issues, I used Dean's Easy Nonfat Milk instead of 2% and I didn't have any dried cranberries, so I ommitted those from the recipe. Everything turned out great!"
