January is National Oatmeal Month, and what better time to learn a few new delectable recipes for this comfort food than during winter’s most bitter embrace? We’ve got three tasty twists on this classic dish that will even keep the kiddos asking for seconds.
1. Amish Baked Oatmeal
This delightful recipe comes from GeniusKitchen.com and is more like a tempting dessert than an ordinary breakfast offering. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, beat 2 large eggs. Add 3/4 c. brown sugar, 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder, 1 tsp. cinnamon, and 1/4 tsp. salt. Mix well. Whisk in 1/3 c. melted butter and 1 c. plus 2 tbsp. milk and add 3 c. oatmeal. Stir well and refrigerate overnight. In the morning, bake at 350 degrees for 35 to 45 minutes. Serve warm with milk.
2. Pan-Seared Oatmeal
Another extraordinary way to serve up the morning helping of oatmeal is to cut it into bars and brown it in a skillet. This recipe from RachelCooks.com is all about taking oatmeal to a new, higher level.
Prepare oatmeal according to package directions, spread into a refrigerator-safe dish and chill overnight. In the morning, cut oatmeal into serving-size slabs and sear lightly on each side in a hot, buttered skillet. Serve with your favorite toppings, including fresh fruit and yogurt.
