  • 1 pint strawberries, rinsed, hulled, and thinly sliced
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons dark-brown sugar, firmly packed

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 1 tablespoon sour cream


  1. In a small bowl, toss 1 pint strawberries, rinsed, hulled, and thinly sliced, with 1 to 2 tablespoons firmly packed dark-brown sugar. Let sit at least 5 minutes to bring out the juices.

    Delicious! The oatmeal is cream but hardy, and the strawberries are just sweet enough to reveal their true flavors. I was skeptical of the sour cream, but I couldn't taste the sourness at all: it lent a creamy milk taste, almost like the whipped cream on a strawberry shortcake. This is now my favorite breakfast :)
