"French Oatmeal"?

DeannaS's picture

I debated just putting this in ch-eats, because truly it was just my desire not to waste food. But, since my children declared that they "loved loved loved it" I thought I should start a new thread. Anyway - what is this "French Oatmeal" of which I speak? It's leftover oatmeal, squashed into patties and then dunked in some beaten eggs with cinnamon, and cooked on the griddle. Serve like French Toast - with butter and maple syrup. Using up leftovers and pleasing the kids. Ya gotta like that.

Oh my.  That does sound delicious.  I wonder if my kids would like it--they're not nearly as big oatmeal fans as I am.

I believe in compost.


 

What if there were no hypothetical questions?

Sounds good to me. we all like oatmeal so rarely have any left over but sometimes there is some that goes in the garbage. will have to try this.

Oatmeal is one  of the very few things that SO cooks...he always makes breakfast and he hates instant. But we rarely have any leftover.

When DH was eating steel cut a lot, I made it  ahead and froze it in individual "sticks".

I can never tell if the kids are going to be ravenous or just plain hungry in the morning. Sometimes they can down 2 bowls each, and sometimes they barely touch one. Go figure. So, I tend to make more than necessary in case it's a hungry morning. I always think that I'll eat it the next day, and then I always forget.

I have some microwave steel cut "cakes" from Trader Joe's (not sure why I bought them because I don't have a microwave--guess I thought I'd take them to work).


Anyway, I think I'll try the "French" approach with them, I bet that would be good.
