    FLKeysJen's Note:

    In the late 19th and early 20th century England, home-made lemon curd was traditionally served with bread or scones at afternoon tea as an alternative to jam, and as a filling for cakes, small pastries and tarts.There are recipes on this web site, and it's also available in most grocery stores in the aisle with the jams and jellies. I had some leftover and thought I'd find a quick oatmeal recipe using it here, and discovered there was none - thus, I'm calling this the original! It's a nice change from your regular morning oatmeal; the lemon flavor is subtle and even the tiny amount of eggs makes the texture more souffle-like. YUM! Fresh raspberries or blueberries and/or sliced almonds or chopped walnuts are good alternative toppings to the crumbled gingersnap.

      I love lemon curd and gingersnap together, and I'm pretty partial to oatmeal as well, so this was a sure thing for me. I had to add a bit more oats to mine to absorb the liquid, but I think it's because I used old fashioned oats rather than the quick oats. I used vanilla rice milk, the full 2 tbs of curd, and I topped it with crumbled gingersnap and a few fresh raspberries. I'll definitely be adding this to my winter breakfast repertoire, thanks for posting! Made for PAC Spring 2014

      Delightful lemon curd-gingersnap taste sensation! Why buy packaged flavored oatmeal when you can have this in the same time? I used 1 1/2 tbsp. of lemon curd. I have even more to celebrate, because a steady diet of real oatmeal brought my cholesterol down to its proper level. Made for The Wild Bunch for ZWT8 Family Picks.

      This is so good!! This produces a wonderful and creamy oatmeal with a great lemony flavor. I used Quick Lemon Curd and raspberries for the garnish - the raspberry lemon combo was fantastic. Thanks for sharing! ZWT8
