A friend of mine gave me a bunch of oatmeal. I have a large family, so the recipe makes a lot, but it can easily be reduced for smaller sizes. After searching for recipes and a bit of tweaking, this is what I came up with. The end result is pretty hearty, so if you want a "gooey" oatmeal, I would reduce the amount of oats used. You can play with the liquid amounts a bit so long as the measurements remain the same. The flavor from the evaporated milk is key. Half and half can be substituted for double milk.
- Combine all ingredients in a pot except oats and bring to a boil.
- Remove from heat.
- Add oats.
- Allow to sit for about 10 minutes, stirring about half way through.
- Serve immediately.
- For variations try adding chopped nuts or dried fruit.
