If you’re like me, you’re constantly looking for ways to spice up breakfast. This recipe is great, and Adam even loves it! Its also super easy and is good leftover, which is always a plus. I have only used craisins in my recipe because I just didn’t have the other dried fruit.
4 cups skim milk
6 halves Apricots, dried, chopped into raisin-size pieces
¼ cup Currants
¼ cup Craisins
3 cups Oats, old fashioned
½ tsp ground Ginger
½ tsp Cinnamon
¼ tsp Nutmeg
¼ tsp Salt
1½ Tbsp Sugar, brown, packed
1. Preheat the broiler. Meanwhile, bring the milk to a low simmer in a large saucepan set over medium-high heat.
2. Stir the apricots, currants, and cranberries into the hot milk, then stir in the oats. Cook for 2 minutes, stirring often. Stir in the ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Cook, stirring, until creamy, adjusting the heat so the oatmeal does not stick but the liquid comes to a low simmer, about 3 minutes longer.
3. Spread the cooked cereal into an 8-inch square baking dish or 6 (6-ounce) ramekins. Sprinkle the brown sugar evenly over the top, then broil 5 inches from the heat until the sugar caramelizes, about 30 seconds. Let stand at room temperature about 2 minutes before serving. Yields 1/2 cup per serving.
Hope you enjoy this as much as Adam did!
