oatmeal....how do you take it?Page 3 of 4    (1, 2, 3, 4)
I like mine cooked in apple juice with dried cherries. I use apple juice for the liquid in place of milk, if I want any..I love to toss in some walnuts too.

I love to cook the oatmeal with a little milk and after add whipping cream from the box directly and sugar. It is delicious, but extremely fattening.

oatmeal....how do you take it? With leeks?

Oh, aye. It's lovely. That or onions. I like my oats savoury.

The best way, though, in my opinion, to have oats is in oatcakes and bannocks, or in gingerbread. Pinhead or stoneground for me, preferably, but I can make do with rolled. None of that instant, thanks.

Pease porridge, (or pease pudding or pease pottage), is actually not an oatmeal dish at all. It's a form of pottage using split peas. It's quite tasty, actually, and usually served with ham or bacon.

Pease Pudding:
500g yellow split peas, soaked overnight in cold water (green are just as good)
1 onion, peeled and quartered
1 rasher bacon
3 tsp Wocestershire
salt and white pepper
20g butter, diced

Soak peas overnight, then drain and place in pot/saucepan with onion and bacon and enough water to cover the peas by about 12cm. Bring to a boil, then simmer until thick (typically 2-2.5 hours). Add butter and Worcestershire before serving and season to taste. Serve alone or with ham or bacon.

My uncle taught me this when I was akid,something my brothers and I used to call "cocoa porridge". We added a tablespoon of cocoa to about half cup of rolled oats,then just enough milk to moisten it and sugar to taste. Nowadays I'll use chocolate syrup and milk when I make it for my son. It was always a good snack when you wanted something sweet and chocolatey.

1- Cook it with half the recomendation of water, add some egg white in it, half a chocolate protein scoop, some cocoa, and half a cup blueberry in it and stir.... it's yummy and consisting.

2- Add some vanilla protein shake with almond milk + wallnuts

3- of if you don't train, simply go for some cinamon powder and applesauce.

Plain, steaming hot with a dash of vanilla, ice cold milk and as much brown sugar as my sweet tooth can stand.

I get steel cut oats when I can.
I like mine with brown sugar, sometimes with pecans and raisins.
I love soft oatmeal cookies.

In Australia we have a bikkie recipe (cookie)
You might need to convert the butter to ounces and the Oven temp to farenhight)
1 cup plain flour, sifted
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup castor sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup desiccated coconut
2 tablespoons golden syrup ( or treacle /molassas if you can't get it in your country..if you use that omit the brown sugar and simply use 1 cup castor sugar)
125g butter, chopped
1/2 teaspoon bicarb soda (baking soda)

Method
Step 1
Preheat oven to 170°C. Place the flour, oats, sugar and coconut in a large bowl and stir to combine. In a small saucepan place the golden syrup and butter and stir over low heat until the butter has fully melted. Mix the bicarb soda with 1 1/2 tablespoons water and add to the golden syrup mixture. It will bubble whilst you are stirring together so remove from the heat. Pour into the dry ingredients and mix together until fully combined. Roll tablespoonfuls of mixture into balls and place on baking trays lined with non stick baking paper, pressing down on the tops to flatten slightly. Bake for 12 minutes or until golden brown.

Up here in Scotland we have White Pudding which is made with oatmeal, suet and onion which is sausage shaped and cooked in batter. As well as porridge.

My favorite way to eat oats is gluten-free Oatmeal muffins with oat bran, apples, raisins and almonds.
I don't have the recipe, but someone at my church makes them and I buy them all every Sunday.

I got this tip from the Frugal Gourmet (does anybody remember him?)
Put the rolled or steel-cut oats and water together before you go to bed and stick it in the fridge.
In the morning it takes less time to cook, and looses that raw taste.
I add raisins, sunflower seeds, and a touch of vanilla during cooking
and top it with a little 100% real maple syrup, some coconut milk, and a pat of organic butter.

I love oats in meatloaf, and if you put them in a spice grinder, they work great as a breading for frying.

My house rabbit loved oats. Its a great food for animals, including horses.

I use Bob's Red Mill gluten-free oats.

re-reading this thread, I was surprised that I was eating oatmeal from the little
instant packages in May 2011 ... I haven't had oatmeal like that in years! the
way I prepare it now is to buy "old fashioned oats" and add various spices like
nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon ... and various fruits like apples or peaches ...

I rarely make cakes or muffins any more ... when I do, I sometimes use a combo
of brown sugar, melted butter and oats to create a streusel topping ... my latest is
that I found a package of frozen broken berries for use in smoothies ... I dumped
some of those berries into my oats while cooking and, aside from being SOUR, it's
fabulous ... so, when I use the sour berries, I add brown sugar to compensate!

Typically with just milk and sugar for me.
Occasionally some cinnamon since many medical reports list many benefits attributed to that spice.
A couple small scoops of raw oatmeal added to a blended fruit smoothie is excellent.

I like my oatmeal:

-mixed with plain Greek yogurt

Or

-a Tablespoon of organic coconut oil

Or

-with fruit

I have one of these options at least 5 times a week.

^^^^^ Nice to see you again...It's been awhile...



If it's plain oatmeal...vegetable oil spread (canola, smart balance, etc...), honey, cinnamon and occasionally vanilla flavored protein powder. If I have flax or wheat germ, I'll add a bit to it.

Crap! Seems that oatmeal is off my list, since I've developed the talent of growing kidney stones, a grand portion of 'healthy foods' are off my list of things I cannot eat, along with broccoli, strawberries...I need to learn to enjoy water and flax seeds, or wait, that was on the list too, okay, water.

Oh Daynadaze, that's awful! Just water? lol .. you're not a plant for cripes sakes.
I wonder if Peppermint Petunia would have any advice regarding kidney stones. The lady is GOLD when it comes to knowledge of health in connection with foods.

What exactly is on the list of not to eat or what can you eat?
If you list them in a new thread and we can all post recipes for you to use!
You can use then thread for future reference. :)

The list of can't eat is long, and it depends on the type of stones, which I seem to like to make a variety. I'd have to go back and look it up but it's something in many foods that can be a cause. The water, I was being a bit over exaggerate, but it's always you don't drink enough water, I drink like a fish, water, melted ice in the one thing that is suppose to be good, lemonade. Yesterday I found an article saying global warming was a cause, global warming or not, if being in dry, hot air is making it worse, well I live in New Mexico where moisture in the air is not to be found. So I need to drink more. I already slosh when I walk. :P
