Dominican Style Oatmeal
This is something I discovered years ago and it has become my favorite way to make oatmeal! It is creamy and lightly sweet and you can simmer it to whatever thickness you prefer. It's quick and easy and a great way to start your morning.
I love the hints of cinnamon and nutmeg.
The original recipe says this serves 2, but for me this makes one big bowl! I often use brown sugar instead of white - I just like the way brown sugar tastes with oatmeal a little better.
Another great option is to stir in a big spoonful of your favorite yogurt, or sprinkle some fresh blueberries, strawberries, or sliced bananas on top! I love how versatile oatmeal is.
Dominican Style Oatmeal from
1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup quick cooking oats
2 tablespoons white sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 pinch ground nutmeg
1 pinch salt
- Combine milk, oats, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt in a saucepan. Bring to a low boil, stirring constantly for 2 minutes, or until it reaches your preferred thickness.
Note - if you are using "old fashioned" oats, plan to simmer for about 10-12 minutes instead of 2!
