If you know my family well, the odds are good that you know how much my youngest son LOVES oatmeal. When you ask him, at any moment of the day, what he would like to eat, he grins at you and says, “Oatmeal, Oatmeal, OATMEAL!” Even after over two years of hearing this, I still laugh every single time.
This kid loves oatmeal so much that he would eat it all day long and happily does request it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. While oatmeal is just about the easiest meal ever, there are limits to when I am willing to serve it. He does however, order it every time it is available on a restaurant menu, yes, even for dinner.
My answer to the monotony of daily bowls of oatmeal is to be as creative as possible with minimal effort. Most of these recipes take less than ten minutes effort and the results are two-thumbs-up delicious.
We bake our oatmeal in the oven, simmer it on the stove, and cook it in the Crock-pot. In over three years of blogging, I’ve amassed more than a few oatmeal recipes. Today I’m sharing our Top Ten Oatmeal Recipes, as voted on by my whole family. These are tried and true favorites and I’m willing to bet they will become favorites in your home as well.
