Fried Oatmeal


Thanks to City Gal Moves to Oz Land, I tried fried oatmeal last week. It was really easy and I found it froze well, and reheated in my mini crock pot too.

Here's her recipe:

Golden Oatmeal Slices
3 c. quick cooking oats
2-1/2 tsp salt (you can cut back on the salt if you want)
4-1/2 c. water
margarine or butter
maple syrup

Stir oats and salt into boiling water. Cook 1 minute, stirring occasionally. Cover pan and remove from heat. Let stand 5 minutes. Turn into greased loaf pan; I used a stick of butter to grease the pan (not the whole stick, c'mon, you know what I mean!) Cool, and then chill overnite. Turn out and cut into 1/2" thick slices. Brown in butter over medium heat. Serve with syrup.

So, here's how mine turned out:

After it was done, I cut it into squares and put it in Ziploc containers, then to the freezer.

On the day I served it, first thing in the morning, I dumped a Ziploc container of fried oatmeal into my mini crock pot. By lunch, it was defrosted and heated through.

Yummy! It was all gobbled up! I didn't serve it with syrup (toddlers + syrup = one big sticky - hyper mess!) but they loved it plain! I had it with a bit of butter on it and loved it!
