We just got home from the holidays tonight and I have already made a batch of Kath’s Cranberry Sauce to have on my oatmeal tomorrow morning. My Eggnog Oatmeal.
If you have leftover eggnog, as I do, here is one great thing to do with it that is so simple and so yummy. I actually used a Soy based eggnog but any should work. If you want to be really indulgent, instead of topping it with banana throw some chopped apple in a microwave safe bowl and toss it with brown sugar and cinnamon. Microwave it for a minute or two until cooked and you have faked apple pie filling to top your oatmeal with. I love the Holiday Season.
I am by no means an oatmeal expert, this is how I make it nice and quick before work. I also like my oats with a bit of chew left in them. Feel free to adapt the method to your favorite porridge techniques. Overnight oatmeal would probably work with an eggnog base too.
Eggnog Oatmeal Recipe(serves 1)
In a pot over low heat combine oats, water, eggnog, half of the banana and the flax. Let warm on low heat for five minutes. Turn up to medium and stir regularly. Add brown sugar, several healthy grates of nutmeg, vanilla and walnuts. Keep stirring until most of the liquid is absorbed. Whip in the almond butter. Remove from heat and put in a bowl. Top with banana and a bit more nutmeg. Serve hot!
