    NanciY's Note:

    A hearty, healthy way to get your oatmeal. Has a consistency similar to brown rice. Pinhead oats can usually be found in the flour section of your grocery. I usually start the recipe while I am making coffee, and then let it simmer while I shower and get ready for work. By the time I am done with that, I have a nice hot, hearty breakfast waiting for me.

      Very good recipe when you want a single serving. This is similar to my steel cut oats (aka pin oats) recipe. Toasting the raw oats in butter really brings out the careful not to burn them! It's also a good idea to watch them while they simmer in water, to lessen the chance of overflow from the liquid inside the pan. I replaced the half & half with skim milk and left out the extra 2 tblsp. of butter (trying to watch calories/fat). Very delicious with a bit of brown sugar! MERP'd for Fall PAC '12.

      Wonderful! Perfect portion for one, great consistency, and tasty to boot! I like to saute some diced apple sprinkled with some cinnamon sugar along with the oats for an extra minute or so.
