BAREFOOT CONTESSA'S SUNDAY MORNING OATMEAL



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.
