Is regular oatmeal, the kind you make by following the instructions on the back of the box, just too plain? Does it just not give you that satisfaction that you need at breakfast to start your day off on the right note? Is it just too darn healthy? Well then, try my creamy oatmeal recipe!
Let's get started.
Here's what you need:
1 cup of oats , any brand will do
1 cup of water
1 cup of milk (whole milk! There's no room in this recipe for that pansy 2% stuff, or even worse, fat free!!)
Step 1: Measure Ingredients
I use a glass 16 oz measuring cup, and to avoid a mess, this order of business works for me.
a.) Measure a cup of oats
b.) Pour oats into a bowl
c.) Measure a cup of water
d.) Add to the water a cup of milk, bringing the mixture to the "2 cups" mark
e.) Cut a slice of butter about the size of the one in the photo. (this step can wait, if you want)
