Oatmeal Schmidt Family Style

Diane Schmidt


Ok so yeah oatmeal is oatmeal, right? I have made oatmeal this way for years and my kids won't eat it any other way (and wouldn't touch boxed oatmeal). I am posting it mostly because my kids want it added into my cookbook I am making for them. So, yes, its easy and simple but so delicious and what an awesome comfort food on a cold winter morning!
