Ya! We have a follower! Thanks, Shawn! This recipe is for you!
I originally got this recipe from a friend whose sister used to live in Pennsylvania near Amish Country. I changed a couple of things like adding raisins and cinnamon. (Yes, Shawn, you can leave the raisins out!) It is a good comfort breakfast food and great to serve to company. I normally use rice milk to make mine dairy free. I've experimented, too, with using less sugar (1/4 cup), 2 eggs whites, and 3 TB butter and it worked well, just make sure you add a little more cinnamon.
Getting the request for this recipe made me realize that I have a lot of oatmeal recipes as I've already posted a recipe for Steel-cut Oatmeal. I can already think of a couple of other ones that I use on a regular basis that I'll post someday in the future, especially with the weather turning cooler. I guess I like oatmeal. I think it is such a comfort food.
