Breakfast is Possible
Now more than ever parents are both in the work force. Breakfast has become a ‘meal’ that is eaten on the run. A granola bar, banana or a quick stop to pick up a ‘breakfast sandwich’ are all okay options but they really don’t keep you “full” until lunchtime. This recipe makes a 2-quart size baking dish, which is a lot of oatmeal. If you make this oatmeal, let’s say on a Sunday night, you have delicious Amish Style Oatmeal for breakfast for the next couple of mornings.
Oats are by far the most nutritious of the cereal grasses and are consumed after they have been cleaned, toasted, hulled and cleaned again. After this process they become oat groats. Oat groats contain most of the original nutrients and can be cooked and served as cereal. They can also be prepared in the same manner as rice and used as a side dish, salad or stuffing.
When steamed and flattened with huge rollers, oat groats become regular rolled oats also called old-fashioned oats, take about 15 minutes to cook. Quick-cooking, rolled oats are groats that have been cut into several pieces before being steamed and rolled into thinner flakes. Though they cook in about 5 minutes, many think the flavor and texture aren’t as satisfying as with regular rolled oats.
Old fashioned oats and quick-cooking oats can usually be interchanged in recipes. Instant oats however, are not interchangeable because they’re made with cut grouts that have been precooked and dried before being rolled. This precooking process so softens the oat pieces that, after being combined with a liquid, the mixture can turn baked goods such as muffins or cookies into gooey lumps. Most instant oatmeal is packaged with salt, sugar, and other flavorings.
