Red face Oatmeal Disaster

Hi All - I was supposed to bring breakfast to work today but my oatmeal buffet idea never came through because the oatmeal came out a little bit soupy.

It's not totally ruined and it tastes good - but it wasn't servable to co-workers.

Any ideas on what to do with a whole ton of cooked oatmeal? (dry it was 18 oz worth)

I can eat it for breakfast and lunch but... geez.

Thanks!

I guarantee you can freeze it in breakfast bowl sized portions and use them at will.

If there is no sugar or flavorings in the oatmeal, you can experiment with savory versions adding sauteed onions and meats, veggies, etc. To make a side dish for a dinner entree.

Make some type of breakfast bar: mix with dried fruit, a bit of flour, honey or brown sugar, maybe some yogurt, nuts, coconut, or choc chips, and bake in a pan. I have also mixed with apple butter. I freeze my "experiments" wrapped individually in plastic wrap and placed in ziplocks. Great to grab for breakfast on the go.

I posted something along this line awhile back.
