I used old fashioned oats for this recipe and I added peaches, walnuts and vanilla ensure. Made this in memory of your DH for my DM. She is a very picky eater and very difficult to feed these days, but, she enjoyed this. She could not finish it all but asked me to tell you that she loved it. Thanks for sharing this recipe :)

Very nice way to make oatmeal! I love cream of wheat and Malt-o-Meal so I wanted to try this version of oatmeal and I did enjoy it. You really do have to keep stirring to make sure it doesn't stick. Served with brown sugar and a little more milk - smooth and creamy - thanks for sharing the recipe!

This was just delicious and seriously comforting. A definite winner for this oatmeal lover. I used 1/2 cup of vanilla soymilk which added a nice flavor along with some cinnamon and Splenda. Topped it off with a sliced banana and I'm a happy lass. Thanks Sharon.

This is a very yummy, smoother and creamier way to eat oatmeal! I used old fashioned oats and the lesser amount of skim milk. I cooked mine in the microwave for ease of preparation. I served mine with cinnamon, diced dried dates, ground flax and a little splenda. YUM!!

This makes enough to feed at least 3 people. DH added butter, milk, and brown sugar to his. I added butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, and cardamom to mine. We both thought it tasted okay, but neither of us was really excited about the texture. I probably won't make it again, but it was worth a try.

Love it love it! I use REAL Scottish Porridge Oats (1:3 ratio) for this as they are already finely milled though not pre-parched like quick oats. Using these I don't have to process the oats and I love hot cereals. I had no wheat bran so I doubled the germ using the honey kind. Bulk sections, health food stores and Bob's Red Mill all have Scottish porridge oats. Thank you for a winner Sharon!!

Being an oatmeal and cream of rice fan, I was anxious to try this. I had no milk so I had to sub half and half. Fabulously creamy (buy not quite as healthy). I topped it with granulated maple sugar. It is great!!!! Thanks for a great recipe!

This makes 2 generous servings of a smooth and creamy oatmeal. Not having the wheat germ, I opted to use oat bran. I topped it off with milk, brown sugar and cinnamon for a healthy breakfast. The recipe has endless possabilities; i.e., nuts, dried fruit, fresh fruit.
