I'm with you! McCann's is the best oatmeal I've ever tasted. I also don't care overmuch for the product in the can. It's just a tad too chewy for my taste.
I always make the oatmeal with milk instead of water. I add brown sugar and cinnamon to the milk before I add the oatmeal and a dash of salt. I like to add toasted pecans sprinkled over the top before I serve.

Any idea on how to do this? Sounds like a nice alternative to cereal in the morning, and it is ready to eat before I go to work!

I like raisins and walnuts in oatmeal. Bananas are good, too. I've never tried cranberries, but that sounds good.

first off, bienvenue to our board. Cranberries are really good in oatmeal. The dried ones plump up nicely whether you are cooking your oats on the stove or nuking a packet.
