"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 Recipe #274524 and raspberries for the garnish - the raspberry lemon combo was fantastic. Thanks for sharing! ZWT8"
"Never in my life have I even thought of lemony oatmeal... don't know why not, cuz it was great! I used nearly 2T of lemon curd (that's what I had leftover from something else) and water in place of milk and it ended up lightly lemon flavored. I think I might add a little lemon zest if I wanted a more pronounced lemon flavor. I topped it with fresh strawberries. Super easy, too! Made for ZWT4."
"This is an innovative idea, as well as yummy! I added the higher amount of lemon curd, as we are lemon lovers. We tried different bowls with different toppings -- the gingersnaps, as well as raspberries, blueberries, sliced almonds, and walnuts. We liked it topped with the nuts the best, though the raspberries and nuts together also made a nice combination. If you are a big eater, you might want to make 50 percent more than the recipe calls for. The amount of liquid and cooking time produced the perfect consistency for this oatmeal. Thanks for the great idea and recipe!"
