Bananas Foster Oatmeal
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 30 min.
The best oatmeal I've had in my life. I didn't give it 5 stars because I tweaked the recipe, omitted the rum extract along with the ginger and nutmeg because I didn't have any on hand. I halved the recipe because it was only for me and couldn't bring myself to use 4 tbls of butter because I used whole milk so used 3 instead. I think it'd be delicious with only 1/2 the butter. I also stirred in walnuts and fresh blueberries at the end and topped with cream. It was truly amazing and my house smelled phenomenal while I was cooking. I'm going to make it again tomorrow and try toasted pecans instead of walnuts.
Very easy and delicious. I used the banana mixture as a topping so I could add less sugar to the children's portions vs. adults. We served with extra sliced banana.
This recipe is a calorie bomb, so more for a special occasion or treat -- but it's great. I use it to use up bananas when I don't feel like making another loaf of banana bread or freezing them. My son, who isn't a huge oatmeal fan loves this. It's hard not to. It's like dessert.
My family raved over this recipe this morning! I made it for a special Sunday morning breakfast because I had all the ingredients. Even our youngest daughter who doesn't care for oatmeal ate two bowls of it! Quick to prepare, too! Like Corwin44, I had some for dessert at supper tonight. I put some leftover homemade vanilla pudding over the top of mine & mixed it together. Yum!
This was really good and really easy. I was making eggs Benedict for dinner and needed a side. I had everything in the house to make this oatmeal so I have it a try. My family loved it. We liked it so much that we each had a scoop of the oatmeal over a scoop of vanilla ice for dessert.
