    dogsandwoods's Note:

    This is something that I've done for years in order to perk up my oatmeal without adding calories. It takes a few minutes, but is worth it. I came up with the idea when I was tiring of the taste of plain oatmeal.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 1

    Yield:

    serving

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1/2 cup plain oatmeal (of your choice, but follow the serving size on the package)
    • 1 cup water (again, follow the serving size on the package)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat a medium skillet--I use cast iron--until it is medium hot to very hot.
    2. 2
      Put all of the oatmeal that you will be cooking in the pan.
    3. 3
      Stir constantly over medium high heat until oatmeal is just this side of dark brown. This gives it a nutlike flavor -- without the nuts and without the calories.
    4. 4
      Cook as per box instructions.
    5. 5
      You may add other cinnamon & sugar and/or raisins, but mind the calories.

      I loved this method. Admittedly, I botched the first round and over browned the oats and they started to smell a bit burnt. So I chucked that batch and started again. Yummy results and I'll definitely make it again. Thanks for the recipe!

      This was a wonderful surprise for our morning breakfast. It definitely tasted nuttier and I think alot better than just the plain oatmeal. Thanks for this idea! Made for PAC Spring 2012.

      I was very pleasantly surprised at the differance this method made in the taste of the oatmeal. I usded Steel Oats as that's what we prefer, and served with a sprinkle of cinnamon, teaspoon of brown sugar and a pat of butter. Made for a very pleasant breakfast on this cold morning. Even DH enjoyed and he doesn't usually eat oatmeal EVER. What a great idea you had I'll be doing this from now on. Made for Spring PAC 2011
