How to make oatmeal

Oatmeal can be made in various ways, but we will show you a few simple ways to make a whole, hearty breakfast.

  1. To cook regular oats, fill a pot with one cup of water and bring it to a boil.  For every cup of water you add to the pot, add a half cup of oatmeal.  Once at a boil, add the oatmeal and stir.  Continue to do this until you see a consistency you want.  This can often take up to 15 minutes, depending on the brand.
  2. To add flavor, consider adding salt, syrup, honey or brown sugar.  Some often enjoy real and/or dried fruits.
  1. To cook steel oats, fill a pot with one cup of water and bring it to a boil.  The more water you add, the creamier your oatmeal will become.  As the water boils, add 1/4 cup of oatmeal for every cup of water you have.  Let the oats sit until the water comes to a boil again.  Reduce the heat and stir occasionally for the next 20 minutes.  The longer you cook, the softer these oats will become.
  2. Like regular oats, adding honey and cinnamon can spice up the flavor.
  1. Instant oatmeal will require a deep bowl to prevent overflowing.  Empty the packet into the bowl and add the amount of water the package states; this is usually about a half cup or so.  Boil water either in the microwave or kettle, and once it boils, pour it slowly over the oats.  Stir the oats for about two minutes, let it sit for a minute and top with flavors if you prefer.
