Creamy oats, fresh blueberries, and a swirl of lightly sweetened "cheesecake" adds up to a hot breakfast bowl that will leave everyone full and happy.
2cupsold-fashioned rolled oats
4ouncessoftened cream cheese or 4 ounces whipped cream cheese
Combine the oats, water, and salt in a medium-size saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer on medium/low until the oats are tender and the oatmeal has thickened, about 5 minutes.
While the oatmeal is cooking, combine the cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla in a small bowl. (I just use one of the bowls we will be using for serving the oatmeal.) Stir, or mash with a fork, the cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla until mostly smooth.
When the oatmeal has thickened, remove from the heat and stir in the blueberries. Scoop the oatmeal into serving bowls and divide the cream cheese mixture between the servings. Stir gently to swirl the cream cheese through each dish. Enjoy!
