Strawberry Oatmeal

(4 servings)

  • 2 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 1 pint strawberries (thawed if frozen)
  • 1 and 3/4 cups milk
  • 1 and 3/4 cups water
  • 4 Tablespoons sour cream or yogurt
  • 2 or 3 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
Prepare strawberries. The should be hulled and sliced.

In a medium bowl, combine strawberries and brown sugar and gently stir until all strawberries have sugar on them. Set aside.

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, bring water and milk and salt to a boil. Immediately add the oats and reduce heat to medium-low. Stirring occasionally, allow oats to cook 5 to 6 minutes to desired texture.

Fill four serving bowls with oatmeal, leaving room for the topping. Spoon 1 Tablespoon of sour cream on each bowl followed by 1/4 of the strawberries.

A lot more lively than instant oatmeal. And we all know how good oatmeal is for us. Try different flavored yogurts to make this recipe different every time.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank KennyRogers for this recipe.
