Grandma's Old Fashioned Oatmeal

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by bullwinkle

This isn't my Grandmother's recipe. I have had it over 10 years and don't remember where I got the recipe. I am guessing at the time it takes to make this.

This is a wonderful creamy rich oatmeal. The additions of both granular sugar and the brown sugar give it's sweet flavor, while using evaporated milk adds the creaminess. I enjoyed it very much and will make again. Thank you, Bullwinkle : )
