A healthy, hearty breakfast makes a big difference in this house. We were recently given some Irish cut oats. They were good, but took forever to cook. Then I found this recipe....
Prep Time: 12 hours
Cook time: 15 minutes
Cost: approx. $3.50
4 cups Irish oats ($1.50)
5 cups milk ($2.00)
Mix 4 cups of Irish oats in 5 cups of milk. Cover and let soak overnight in fridge.
In heavy saucepan bring oats, milk, 2 tsp. vanilla to a boil. Reduce heat and let simmer 10 minutes or until oats have softened stirring often. Add in 1/4-1/2 cup brown sugar and simmer 5 more minutes. Sprinkle with cinnamon and serve.
