As requested here is the recipe. I really don't need to write a "recipe" but I know some people are intimidated by cooking anything but "instant" oatmeal in the microwave and this is so easy. It only takes 5 minutes plus some water boiling time!
for 1 serving
- 1 c. water
- 1/2 c. oats
- milk and/or eggnog
- brown sugar
- dried cranberries
- Bring the water and a dash of salt to a boil. I like my oatmeal creamier so I use 3/4 c. of water and a little less than 1/4 c. of milk.
- Turn down to medium heat and stir the oats. Cook for approximately 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
- Add desired amount of cranberries, cinnamon, and brown sugar. Top it off with a tablespoon of milk or eggnog for an extra holiday kick!
