Butterscotch Oatmeal

Butterscotch Oatmeal

(2 servings)    Printable Version
  • 1 and 3/4 cups milk
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 egg - beaten
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • raisins (optional)
In a medium-sized sauce pan at medium-high heat, combine milk, egg and brown sugar. Stir in the oats. Cook until you get a rapid boil. Reduce heat to simmer and cook until thick. When you get your desired consistency, stir in the butter until melted and mixed.

Serve with milk. If desired, sprinkle raisins over the top of each serving.

I'm a fan of oatmeal again since my mother emailed me this recipe. Hope you like it too.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank newjerseygal for this recipe.

If you reduce the sugar to 1/3 cup, this is still really good. The only other similar recipe I found used butterscotch chips which we never have in the house (because I eat them as a snack and gain weight). Anyway... pretty good recipe. I'd make it again.

Add some sliced bananas at the last minute and sprinkle with cocoa powder and this has become my new favorite breakfast!

I thought, when adding 1/2 cup of brown sugar, that seems like a lot of sugar. But, I like to follow the recipe the first time around. It is way too much sugar. I would say start with less and then add more later, if you like.

Very tasty and creamy, perhaps a little sweet, but otherwise excellent.

Even eaten with milk, this was much too sweet to consider as a breakfast item.

Favorite oatmeal I've had in a long time and it's always so much better to make from scratch than from those packets. Deeee-licious! Deee-lightful!

This was very easy to make and was WONDERFUL! I did cut down to 1/4 cup brown sugar and added raisons and walnuts. I was concerned about how much it made, but it reheats in the microwave very well.

Wow - I have hated porridge (as we call oatmeal in Australia) my whole life. This porridge is the first I've eaten!

We are having a blizzard and my son, who has been shoveling snow for a half hour, wants me to make him this recipe for breakfast when he comes in. It really tastes like butterscotch and its easy to make.

Love it. I use splenda/brown sugar to sweeten. Less calories. A breakfast even small children will eat.

My mom use to make this for me, on special mornings, when I was little. I was so happy to rediscover this recipe, so I can share it with my children. They loved it. This one is a winner.

It was quite tasty, I liked it. But a little on the rich side - instead of gobbling it up like most oatmeal, I found myself slowing down halfway. Not to mention the guilt! Oatmeal should make me feel better about my diet, not guilty! It will definitely be a rare oatmeal variation in my household, assuming I even make it again when I have fruit or honey to add instead.
