How to Make Good Oatmeal

  • Author: Julie
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 15 minutes
  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x

Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cups water
  • 1 cup whole milk*
  • 2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 3/4 teaspoons kosher salt 
  • 1 heaping teaspoon ground cinnamon, or to taste

Topping ideas: butter, brown sugar, toasted pecans, maple syrup, cream, chopped dried fruit 


Instructions

  1. Add water, milk, oats, and salt to a pan, and bring to a boil over medium-high heat.  
  2. When the liquid begins to boil, turn the heat down to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the liquid is mostly absorbed and the oats are tender, about 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally. 
  3. Remove from heat and stir in cinnamon. 
  4. Divide into bowls, and top with butter, brown sugar, toasted pecans, maple syrup, cream, chopped dried fruit, or all of the above! 

Notes

*We like our oatmeal a little on the thicker side.  Add up to 1/2 cup more milk for a thinner consistency.
