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.
- 2 1⁄2 cups water
- 1⁄8 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups dry oatmeal
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 (5 ounce) can evaporated milk
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar, to taste
- Bring the 2 1/2 cups water to a boil.
- Then add the salt.
- While stirring constantly, gradually add the oatmeal.
- Continue to stir the oatmeal and add the sugar and cinnamon.
- Cook 1 minute and add the evaporated milk.
- After adding the evaporated milk reheat to boiling.
- Pour oatmeal in a serving dish and top with the butter and brown sugar.
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 : )
Made for Beverage Tag 2008. This makes a wonderful breakfast on a cold winter morning. It had just the right amount of sweetness and the texture was perfect. Even my two "babies" (a rottweiler and cockapoo) loved this special treat. I added a handful of fresh blueberries to my bowl and had this with some toast made from Bread Machine Portuguese Sweet Bread (Recipe #185431). Thanks for sharing this great recipe, bullwinkle. It is going straight into my keeper file. .
Absolutely Loved this! I was looking for something hearty and warm for breakfast and decided to try this. I've never added evaporated milk to oatmeal before and It made it so rich and creamy. I easliy cut the recipe in half and it turned out great. I used quick cooking oatmeal so It came together very quickly. Even my 2 yr old liked it. One bite for mom... One bite for her... One bite for mom... ;) Thank You so much for posting. There was no need to change anything. This recipe is perfect as is. (LOVE that!!) I will definately make this one again.
