My favorite is Scottish oatmeal. I put plenty of butter in it, plus a little milk and either salt or stevia with cinnamon/nutmeg.

I cook a half cup of Country Choice organic old fashioned oatmeal in just under 1 cup water in a glass bowl. Microwave 2 1/2 minutes, add some ground up flaxseed for my omega 3 dose and eat. No need for sugar, honey or syrup. Monday to Friday at work I only have a few minutes to make my oatmeal at around 8:30 am and eat breakfast, and I don't keep a stash of other things to add in. So it's a simple breakfast but tasty enough and does the job. All those prepackaged oatmeal products, or the instant products are cardboard compared to the "real deal" oatmeal like I prepare. The prepackaged stuff needs all those extra flavors or sweetners because it has no natural taste or texture left.

I'm definitely not an oatmeal purist. I make my oatmeal with instant oatmeal. One packet of plain and one of cinnamon and sugar mixed together. Nothing added except boiling water.

I get the old fashioned oats (health food store) and cook it, then a dollop of butter, a little brown sugar, a tablespoon milk, and enjoy!

I cook my oatmeal with milk and add raisins to it. It's very good!

For me oatmeal should be eaten as simply as possible. I do add a small amount of sugar, under a 1/4 tsp, and usually brown sugar, and of course a small of amount of milk. One thing I do weird is that I don't mix the milk in, it just sits on top of the oatmeal. Occasionally, I do some minor touches, such as almonds, raisins. Never fresh fruit though on hot cereal.

Oh, and NEVER EVER the instant oatmeal from envelopes. I'd rather eat something else than those....

Milk, sugar, butter and a pinch of salt (when cooking) and brown sugar if I am feeling like it.

That is how my family always ate it... from a bowl, with a spoon!

My wasbands family eats it from a plate... with nothing but .... nothing. I can't do that.
