    genus's Note:

    My dad showed me this technique for making oatmeal in the microwave. I never microwaved oatmeal because it always boiled over and never tasted as good. And instant oatmeal is truly awful. This recipe is quick and simple, and gives a great-textured, chewy oatmeal. Plus, there are no dishes other than your bowl and spoon!

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Pour desired amount of oatmeal into cereal bowl. (I suggested 1/2 cup, but any amount is fine. However, if you use much more than this, you will probably want to use a larger bowl so the oatmeal doesn't boil over before it is fully done).
    2. 2
      Add enough water to just cover the oatmeal. (1/2 cup water if you are using 1/2 cup of oatmeal).
    3. 3
      Microwave on high for about 2 minutes. (The actual time will vary depending on the microwave. I let it go until a volcano forms. I turn the microwave off just before the volcano erupts over the side of the bowl. I then let it sit in the microwave for about a minute, but it's not necessary.).
    4. 4
      Sprinkle a dash of cinnamon on top.
    5. 5
      Add sugar and milk/cream to the desired consistency and flavor.

      Perfect! I had bought some old fashioned oats for the increased nutritional value over quick oats. I had no idea how to prepare them without cooking them on the stove top for 10 minutes. This recipe fixed that! 2 minutes to perfection! Thank you for posting this!
