during the colder winter months, i enjoy eating oatmeal daily. both of these brands are my favorites, and i usually cook enough portions of oatmeal to last the week.
measuring the proper amount based on the package directions, i cook the oatmeal on the stovetop. often, these brands take about 20 minutes to cook until perfection. then, i save the oatmeal in the refrigerator and simply warm every morning in a matter of minutes.
oatmeal can be served with a variety of toppings, such as dried fruit, milk or half and half, nuts, fresh berries, maple syrup, brown sugar and even bananas. i try to top my oatmeal with something different each morning and truly enjoy starting the day with this wonderful taste. just delicious !
