This is a classic among the breakfasts in my mom's house, specially in the winter.It is real simple, heartwarming, and works wonders when one needs to eat and has a stomachache.
Consists in cooking 1 cup rolled oats in 2 cups water, over low heat, until it reaches the desired consistency. I don't like mine too thin, so I let it cook for about 15 minutes.
It is important to keep an eye on it, because it might spill when boiling, just like milk.
A good measure is to avoid small pots.
At my mom's we serve it with several accompaniment options:
Warm or cold milk,
a little bit butter,
a little bit salt,
a little bit honey,
sugar and cinnamon,
or any combination of the options above.
