It's great for during the week when you have to hustle to get to work or to school. Plus it's also delicious!! Tip; if you want to flavor your oatmeal, you can add about 1/4 cup of flavored yogurt or fresh fruit and stir until well mixed.


  1. Heat stove to medium heat.
  2. Put oats and water [or milk, water and oats] in small saucepan. Heat to boiling, stirring frequently.
  3. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring, for four minutes more, till thick and creamy.
  4. Add salt.
  5. Serve.

A simple and tasty recipe for a quick, healthy breakfast. I added fresh bananas and strawberries and let them "stew" for a few minutes.......YUM!
