How to Make Cooked Oatmeal from Scratch

Welcome to the Quaker Kitchen! Iím Quaker Anne. Today we are going to make cooked oatmeal, one of Americaís oldest and most classic breakfast cereals. And as you may have guessed, itís truly one of my favorites. In fact, I grew up eating oatmeal almost every day, especially during cold winter months in northern Michigan. Needless-to-say, oatmeal has been a staple food in in my own kitchen - our children were raised on it just like I was!
Nutritious cooked oatmeal made in the Quaker Kitchen. Making cooked oatmeal from scratch is not difficult at all. Itís actually one of the easiest hot cereals to cook - easier to work with than letís say, Cream of Wheat or Ralston cereals, and homemade oatmeal is certainly much better than instant oatmeal from a packet.

Is oatmeal good for you? It sure is. Oats are a nourishing food source, rich in calcium, iron, B vitamins, potassium and other important nutrients. Oats are also low in gluten.

As a cereal, Oatmeal is not only delicious and nutritious, but when made from scratch, it is also very, very economical. Make a single serving of oatmeal with the following recipe and be sure to watch the video above for more cooking directions.
