Strawberries and Cream Oatmeal is a sweet and creamy way to start your day. Full of quick cooking hearty oatmeal, and plenty of fresh strawberries; you will have a mouthwatering breakfast in minutes!
If kids like it, it must be good! I made this Strawberry and Cream Oatmeal for families at church recently, and it was devoured. A friend of mine told me she made oatmeal for her kids the next day and upon serving them they whined, "Ummm no mom! The kind with the strawberries!"
I serve others by making their home life more tumultuous. It's my gift.
I am excited to share my Strawberries and Cream Oatmeal recipe, not only because so many people have requested the recipe, but because the recipe is dead on. Do you know the secret to making this exceptional oatmeal sing? You're probably going to guess sugar, and though you will be taking an aggressive dip into your sugar bowl, that is not it.
It is salt.
Yes, salt. When used properly salt amplifies the flavor of whatever you are cooking. It isn't just for parching your mouth after devouring a bag of fries. I found 1/2 - 3/4 tsp of table salt to be the sweet spot for really bringing the flavors of this Strawberries and Cream Oatmeal to the next level. Extra Credit Homework: Test out to see what a difference salt makes. Add the salt last after making the oatmeal and tasting it, you'll be surprised by the difference.
There are a dizzying amount of oatmeal to choose from at the grocery store. When I say "Minute Oatmeal" I am talking about this oatmeal in particular. You can feel free to use a different type of oatmeal, but your cook time and milk needed may vary.
