No reason to wait for dinner to start working on Grandma’s Recipes. This is from When French Women Cook, a Gastronomic Memoir. Sounds pretty high brow, but really was a quite delicious basic oatmeal that I will probably make again… and again.
Cast of Characters:
Half cup oatmeal, one cup water and a dash of salt in the pan- bring to a boil.
Add a grated apple and a touch of lemon juice.
Cook for about five minutes, pour in about 1/3 cup milk and a dob of butter. Cook another minute. Notice how dangerously close I am to pouring milk all over my stove? Not easy to pour and take pictures at the same time!
At this point, your oatmeal is done! I topped mine with some Maple Syrup. You could do brown sugar also.
OOOHHH YEAH. Not a bad way to start a day.
Take a bite. You know you want to.
