This is a childhood favorite.


  1. Soak the oatmeal with 2 1/4 cups of the milk in a bowl.
  2. In a saucepan, heat the remaining 3 cups of milk to almost boiling point.
  3. Add the oatmeal mixture, the sugar, and the salt to the heated milk and stir well. Continue to stir the oatmeal until it is cooked and the mixture is thick (several minutes).
  4. Pour into serving dishes and sprinkle with cinnamon while hot.
  5. Makes 5 cups.

I quartered the recipe approximately, used soy milk and old fashioned oats(mixed with flaxseed, wheat germ and wheat bran). So I eyeballed the basic recipe and loved the results! Thanks! Made for My 3 Chefs event. :)
