Reviews for Oatmeal Brulee with Ginger Cream
"I made this recipe for Christmas last year and plan to make it again this year. It was absolutely delicious and I don't even like oatmeal! I prepared the oatmeal the night before except for broiling. In the morning, I warmed the oatmeal and then proceeded to the broiling step.This is definitely a recipe worth keeping!"
"I have made this recipe several times. It's a great way to liven up plain old oatmeal. So delicious!"
"I have made this recipe for the last 3 years on Christmas morning and my family looks forward to it every year. I make 80% of this recipe the day before, too, so Christmas morning assembly takes almost no time."
"Awesome. Very tasty! My guests all loved it, even the folks who don't like oatmeal. Make extra, it reheats well."
"Just made it for breakfast this a.m. and it made a hit with all of us. I did take some liberty with the directions. I cut out ginger cream and added orange peel, cinnamon, nutmeg, and part of the butter to the cooking oatmeal. I added 1/4 cup half and half to the cooked oatmeal before putting in the ramekins and kept some half and half out for self serve when eating. It was still delicious and much quicker by taking out the first step. I'd give it 5 stars with either method!"
