Auntie Kare’s Yummy Oatmeal
Auntie Karey invented this AMAZING oatmeal to feed her kids on those freezing Vermont winter mornings.
Adding cornmeal & and egg is the unexpected difference.
Beat well in saucepan (off of heat source):
3 ¾ C liquid (half milk/ half water)
½ tsp salt
2 C oats, old-fashioned
2 TBL cornmeal
Dash of cardamom (optional)
Brown sugar (optional—you may prefer to sprinkle it on top after it is served)
1. To saucepan, crack in the eggs and whisk well. Add remaining ingredients and stir to combine.
2. Set pan over medium-high heat; bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer. Cook while stirring until thick. Stir in several teaspoons of brown sugar now, or choose to pass brown sugar at the table.
3. Serve with milk, sweetener of choice and a yummy smoothie or juice.
4. “Hot Chocolate Oatmeal” Variation: add cocoa powder and a pinch of cayenne pepper in step 1 if you are in the mood for “hot chocolate”.
