I think you found this recipe for me months ago. My dad grew up on this stuff and his mom taught my mom to make it and I grew up on it. Every time I visit my dad in California he asks me to make it, my excuse would be that I lost the recipe. He was looking thru some family albums and found the family recipe stuck in the pages. The original recipe is time consuming and I wasn't looking forward to making it. I armed myself with this recipe and flew down to California. Figured I'd make it; it be ok and he'd be happy that I made the attempt. I made the first batch, I did not add cornmeal as the original recipe does not call for it and I did not want to change the texture. I just cooked it longer til it thickened enough. It does need to be stirred as the oats tend to stick to the bottom of the pot. I fried it in nonstick skillet. This was WONDERFUL! Dad loved it so much that I made 3 more batches to put in his freezer. Thank you so much for hunting this down, you brought an old family dish back to us.
