Ready to see what my breakfast was for the past week?
Oatmeal always reminds me of my childhood. Every winter, my dad would make oatmeal in the microwave right before he left for work. So when me and my siblings would wake up in the morning, there would be some warm oatmeal waiting for us in the microwave.
I have actually tried making oatmeal in the microwave, but it overflowed. Not only once, EVERY time I tried making it.
But don’t dismay, I found a no-fail method to get my oatmeal fix, while still being on time for work. And that is to make it on the stove.
This is the perfect breakfast to start your day. It’s warm, it’s comforting, it’s the ultimate winter breakfast. And if there’s one thing that can help you survive being ankle deep in snow, it’s a big bowl of oatmeal. Enjoy!
If you don't know how to make Stovetop Oatmeal for one, then this recipe is for you! I make this for breakfast almost on a daily basis.
- 1 1/2 cups milk of choice
- 3/4 cup quick cooking oats
- 2 Tbsp granulated sugar
- 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
Combine all the ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring constantly until thickened.
