Make the custard:
Whisk ¼ cup cream in a small bowl until it just holds stiff peaks. Whisk together eggs, brown sugar and remaining ¼ cup cream in another bowl. Then gently whisk in the whipped cream.

Assemble and bake the Brulees:

Bring remaining three cups water and salt to a boil in a
heavy sauce pan. Stir in oats and cook over mod heat, stirring
occasionally, until thickened and tender, about 5 minutes.

Divide oatmeal up among four flameproof soup bowls and smooth with
the back of a spoon.

Pour custard over oatmeal. Put bowls on oven racks and bake, switching
position halfway through the baking, until set. About 12 minutes. ( or transfer oatmeal toa very shallow 2 quart baking dish and cover with custard and bake in the middle of the oven for 12- 15 minutes.

Sprinkle 1 tsp. granulated sugar evenly over each custard. Caramelize topping on one

sugar is melted and caramelized.

With a slotted spoon, mound some berries in the center of each bowl, and serve remaining berries on the side.
