Orange Oatmeal

I like to make this for breakfast because it’s quick yet out of the ordinary. The orange flavor adds a little something extra to a weekday breakfast.—Bernice Haack, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

    We really enjoyed this recipe. We added pecans and cranberries.

    I am always looking for nutritious breakfast recipes that I can take to work. I made this the night before; divided it between two ramekins; and refrigerated it overnight. I warmed it up at work the next morning and it was delicious. Thank you, Bernice.

    Very easy and quick to make. It was a nice change to the everyday oatmeal.

    The orange flavor was unusual. I also found it to be too acidic.

    This was so yummy! I squeezed the orange juice fresh and I just could not get enough of this. The brown sugar mixed withthe orange flavor was dynamite.
