A yummy, quick breakfast that my family enjoys. We love oatmeal in the morning.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine oats and cider.
  2. Microwave, uncovered on high for 1-2 minutes.
  3. Stir in the butter, cinnamon and salt (if using. I don't like it with salt but hubby does).
  4. Serve.

I wanted to try this, as I wanted to eat more oatmeal in the mornings and thought this might be the way to ease in. I bought grocery store apple cider, which made this oatmeal very sweet and it had the intense cider flavor. I made one serving, and would probably decrease the cider a little bit next time to make it thicker. Will have again!

Oh wow. The fact that I even ate this without any sweetener is HUGE, as I usually like my oatmeal very very sweet. While it was not necessarily as sweet as I would have liked, it was certainly sweet enough for me to eat it! Lovely apple flavor, I too would think some cut up apples in here would be good. Thanks

I LOVED this DH did not. So I'm rating based on my opinion not his. I made it on top of the stove and the flavor is wonderful. Not overly sweet with just the right amount of bite. I omitted the salt. Thanks for submitting. I will add this to my rotation for breakfast.
