Picture of Creamy Oatmeal
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!!)
salt
butter


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)

With the intent to find a quick and easy creamy morning
oatmeal recipe for my busy mornings I am satisfied with the creaminess but it’s
not quick. I used thick cut rolled oats
(that’s all I had). It took 3 minutes
longer for each step which wasn’t bad and to be expected since I did not use
quick oats. The consistency was very
creamy and I used 1% milk!! I can’t even
fathom how awesome it’d be had I used whole milk or even half and half!! Amazing.
As far as time goes- this is not conducive to a busy morning. Luckily the kids aren’t in school yet. From looking at recipe to eating- it took me
30 minutes. I need max 10 minutes. I will make this again when I have more time
in the morning.
