I’ve been waiting til it got cold to spring this recipe on yall!
It’s fast, filling and is a crowd pleaser at my house.
Ingredients: (one serving)
-1/2 cup dry old fashioned oats
-1/4 tablespoon real butter
-1 cup water
-3 brown and serve link sausage (I use the Banquet brand—for vegetarians sub an additional handful of nuts)
-large handful almonds, pecans or walnuts. Make sure you have sliced or crushed almonds and whole almonds can be hard to chew especially for small children.
-large handful of raisins
-1 teaspoon turbinado sugar (do not substitute, this gives this dish it’s rich flavor)
- Add oats, water and butter to a pot bring to boil. Let boil for one minute then set aside.
- Microwave sausage for about 1 minute
- Pour oatmeal into a bowl, add sausage, nuts, raisins and top with sugar.
- Mix and eat
To add additional serving sizes just multiply ingredients by the number of people you want to serve. For example, to prepare this for a family of four you would need:
2 cups of oats
1 tablespoon of butter
4 cups of water
12 brown and serve link sausage
a really big handful of nuts and raisins
4 teaspoons of turbinado sugar
Give it a try and let me know what you think!
