SUNDAY MORNING OATMEAL
(Exactly the way Barefoot Contessa makes it)
1-1/2 cups Whole Milk
2 cups Water
1-1/2 cups Quick Cooking Oats (not instant)
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 Banana, sliced
1/2 cup Dried Cherries
1/2 cup Golden Raisins
Pure Maple Sugar or Brown Sugar to sweeten
Heat the milk and water in a medium saucepan until it starts to simmer.
Add the oatmeal and salt, bring to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer for 4-5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thickened.
Off of the heat, stir in the banana, cherries, and raisins. Place the lid on the pot and allow to sit for 2 minutes.
Serve hot with maple syrup or brown sugar and extra milk.
