    Very good! I like to use chicken or veggie broth instead of water to give the oatmeal more flavor.

    Very hardy and warming. Add a little amount of sugar to the oatmeal or Truvia. This makes the dish truly sweet and savory. Without the sweetening, oatmeal is very bland.

    My new favorite breakfast. Use old fashioned oats and they don't turn to mush like quick cook (much better texture than the mush of quick cook). This really sticks with you through the morning. I leave out the scallions and it's a 3 minute breakfast.
