From The Big Book of Breakfast, 2003, by Maryana Vollstedt. A great way to make oatmeal special!
Yum! Yum! I made two for lunch: one for me and one for my husband...I couldn't wait for my husband to come home, I just ate one and mmm! MMMM! they're delicious! Whenever we buy those Instant Oatmeal variety packs from Costco, we always have left over plain flavored ones. I couldn't get myself to eat them but I couldn't throw them out so I just saved them. Well, I'm glad that I did because when I use them this way, they're no longer just plain and blah~ They turn into treats that taste great!
A nice tasting dressed up oatmeal. Will add this to my growing list of oatmeal recipes. Thanks NurseDi. Bullwinkle.
