Bites of sweet apples simmered with rolled oats and cinnamon spices, then topped with brown sugar and a pat of butter all added up to a hot breakfast that smelled like apple pie and tasted like fall had arrived. This was an impromptu breakfast one morning, while we were out of town this past weekend. I had arrived at our cabin with several bruised apples and I knew I needed to bake them into something. However, I didn’t want the temptation of an apple crisp that I would want to eat in its entirety.
I saw the apples sitting on the counter the next morning as I was starting our oatmeal for breakfast. I quickly diced them and simmered them along with the cooking oatmeal. This turned out so well, the boys requested this again for breakfast the first morning we were back home. I enjoyed this every bit as much as the kids did. I can imagine this becoming a regular addition to our breakfast meals.
