Same ol' oatmeal for breakfast? Not!

I have been bored with plain oat meal since Elvis' first hit. Here's what I do. Make your standard oat meal with milk, and add some of this:
1/2 tsp. vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, chopped pecans. Sweeten with 100% maple syrup and thin with 1/2 n' 1/2
Or cut up some apples and use apple pie spice and .... well you get the idea. It sure does make a delightful difference.

I like my oatmeal with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. Cinnamon i.c. is also good.

Oatmeal with vanilla ice cream. I'll have to try that one.

Sometimes with maple syrup
Sometimes with fruit preserves

Oh yeah, preserves...

I used to make super thin pancakes, from bisquick, when I was a kid. I'd make about ten, load them with butter between the cakes. I take one pancake and spoon on black raspberry preserves and roll it up like an enchalada. I make them from scratch today, and sometimes do the same thing. What a nutritious way to start the day, huh?

Sacrilege!

Porridge should only be made with PLAIN, steel-cut oats, soaked overnight, cooked with water and some milk if you like, small pinch of salt.. when ready it should be served with a small amount of milk and a sprinkling of salt. No jams, sugars, spices, fruits etc!

Take it from a native of the country that invented it!

Touche'

However, you come from the land that invented golf, but you don't dominate.

Phil, I love your ideas--everyone else's, too! Once I started eating steel cut, I can't stand the flavored instant stuff.

I've moved this to the grains forum.

Mmm. Sounds similar to how I have mine, only I make mine thick and with milk, and don't put the vanilla or anything else to sweeten it. Just cinnamon, nutmeg, (sometimes allspice), and walnuts. Plus mushy bananas. It tastes kind of like banana bread then.
