I’m still in the “convincing stage” with my brother to eat oatmeal. He is an egg and sausage kind of boy every morning. Which isn’t a bad thing…but I want him to realize how great oats are! Maybe this will do the trick 🙂

I haven’t ever made oatmeal with milk instead of water. I am going to try that. My kids like the “apple pie” oatmeal with dried apple pieces and cinnamon or the “strawberry shortcake” oatmeal with pieces of frozen strawberries and bannana stirred in. I am going to try this “key lime pie” oatmeal in the morning. I like the idea of adding vanilla and lime juice.

What a great idea! I’ll be trying this soon. Recently on vacation I was at a nice restaurant for breakfast and ordered creme brulee oatmeal! It was fabulous. It was oatmeal topped with bananas, blueberries, and the signature creme brulee burnt sugar topping.

Mary: Really Mary? We make it with milk a lot! Hope you like it!
Jen Mmmmm. That does sound good! Restaurants are the best inspiration.

I tried this a few days ago and loved it! Thanks for the great recipe. Now, I just have to convince my DH and DS that they’ll love it too 🙂
