Amazing dish. Made it for Christmas brunch and it was a huge hit. Converted 2 non-oatmealers.

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!

I have made this for the last 3 years every Christmas morning. Its really easy to prep the night before, it's a warm toasty treat to start the day but is easy in the morning and not too filling, but it will hold you over until Christmas dinner. My family looks forward to it every year!

Made this for breakfast on Sunday, it was wonderful. I work at a Bed and Breakfast and am planning on using this recipe for our guests. Thank you for sharing.

This was good, but a lot of work for oatmeal. It would make a great Christmas morning breakfast or special morning treat. I, actually, had it for supper. The ginger cream is great, I used half and half though because that's all I had and to try to cut the fat content too. It turned out good, probably not as thick as the whipping cream would have been, but that's ok.

This was a hit with the whole family! Doesn't take long to make and also works just as well in a casserole dish.
