I adore oatmeal for breakfast, and it has had some amazing good results on my health checkups.
The way I cook it I learned from my husband, Will.
He told me about it for a long time, and I ignored his advice, since I was in a rush to go to work in the mornings.
Take 1/2 cup Quaker Oats, or other brand, "Quick 1 minute" oats, add 1 cup milk and cook in the microwave one and 1/2 minutes.
Stir, then cook 30 seconds more, and watch carefully so it doesn't overflow the bowl. An overflow in the microwave is ugly to clean up, I know.
When cooked add raisins, craisins, a tablespoon of whipped cream, a dash of cinnamon, a teaspoon of brown sugar, or whatever you prefer.
The microwave preparation means you have only one bowl to wash.
This tastes delicious, and is quick and easy to prepare.
