    For the rolled oats version, is the recipe for 1 cup oats or 1/2 cup? It looks like there is only one cup liquid.

    Yum! Have been oatmeal the wrong way. I only had quick oats but tried toasting them in butter and it made a world of difference! Toasty and not glutinous anymore. Yay oatmeal!

    Beautiful recipe. Funny story… I used to HATE oatmeal. Then I got a kidney transplant from my sweet best friend. Now I love oatmeal (and silly pop music), go figure.

    Savory oats are my favorite. A dash of low-sodium soy sauce, a bit of Tabasco, and and handful of sunflower seeds. Add a fried egg and an avocado on special occasions. You’d be surprised at how good it is.

    I love oatmeal. I REALLY love oatmeal. Here is how I do it on the stove top. Bring 1 cup of water and a pinch of salt to a boil. Stir in 1/2 cup rolled oats. Cover, reduce heat and simmer for 12 minutes.

    If I am making rolled oats for just myself, I can also make it in the Instant Pot. To the pot liner, add 1 cup water, a pinch of salt, and 1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats. Place a pat of butter on it. Push “manual” and set it for 4 minutes. Quick release. It works fine for that amount.
