DIRECTIONS

  • In a large saucepan, melt the butter and add the oats. Stir for 2 minutes to toast.
  • Add the boiling water and reduce heat to a simmer. Keep at a low simmer for 25 minutes, without stirring.
  • Alternately, after adding the boiling water,cover the saucepan and remove from the heat. Allow to sit overnight on the counter. In the morning, proceed as directed below.
  • Combine the milk and the buttermilk (or yogurt) with the oatmeal. Stir gently to combine and cook for an additional 10 minutes.
  • Spoon into a serving bowl and top with additional milk or buttermilk, brown sugar, and cinnamon.
  • Feel free to garnish or sweeten as desired: chunky applesauce or fruit conserves are great, as is maple syrup, or add dried fruit to the oats and soak both overnight - sweetens the oats ever so slightly.
