You read that right!
Rice. Cooker. Oatmeal.
I just had to try it!
I figured that when rice cooks, it absorbs the liquid around it. Oats work the same way, so why not?
Well, it WORKED!
Wanna know another awesome thing about it?
You can throw everything in the rice cooker, then go shower, get dressed, wake the kids up and do whatever else it is that you do in the morning, and when you are ready to make breakfast... it's done!!!
A nice hot, hearty meal on a cold morning... finished.
Rice Cooker Oatmeal
What You Need:
2 cups whole oats (I haven't tried quick)
2 cups water
2 cups milk
a dash of salt
toppings of your choice
What You Do:
- Put the oats, water, milk, & salt in the rice cooker.
- Plug in rice cooker, put the lid on, and turn the rice cooker to cook.
- When the rice cooker indicates it is finished, serve!
- Top oatmeal with your favorite toppings. I like brown sugar, cinnamon, and a little dollop of Smart Balance Buttery Spread. Sometimes I add walnuts and raisins, too.
Not really necessary, but if you really want to, you can give it a little stir after 15 minutes.
You want to try it now, don't you?
