These made for a lovely change from the usual breakfast biscuit or pancake. Absolutely loved the nuttiness and crunch of the oatmeal. The oats on the outside caramelized beautifully and, in my opinion, made the dish. They were, as Cosima noted, a bit messy, so I think drier mashed potatoes (I used leftovers that had cream and butter in them already) might work better. Served with Cream Eggs With Irish Cheese (Rachael Ray) #418562 and lots of creamy butter.
