This is seriously one of the best things I've eaten in a long time. I made this on the stove instead of in the microwave, used half fat free evaporated milk/half regular 2% milk and I poured a little cold fat free evaporated milk over the top along with the brown sugar and pecans. All of us LOVED this oatmeal and wished there was more for seconds. But there was not. Next time, I'll double it. Excellent for cold winter mornings.

I thought this was pretty good. Definitely better than most pumpkin oatmeal recipes I have tried. I only had quick oats, so I had to use those. I would definitely recommend the rolled oats. I made 1/2 recipe and it made 4-5 servings. So, the actual recipe, written as is, would make at least 8 servings and not 4. I microwaved it for 8 minutes and it seemed just right. Be patient, it will take at least that long to thicken and the liquid to absorb. I sprinkled mine with the optional brown sugar and pecans. I definitely recommend them. I probably added a little more brown sugar than suggested. I then added milk to my dish, as I always do with oatmeal.



This was fantastic! My husband accidentally bought quick cooking oats, so I decreased the cooking time to 6 minutes in the microwave. I love that it's easy to control the amount of sugar in this recipe--less for me, a little more for my kids. This will be a Fall staple in our house. I can make up a batch and reheat servings before school. Thanks for sharing!
