  1. delicious. Add the milk, egg and brown sugar to a cool pan and gradually bring the heat up to keep the egg from just being a scrambled egg in your milk. Make sure you whisk the egg well and continue to stir as the heat rises. You can cut the sugar back to 1/4 or - Read more ...
  2. Wow, this is sweet. I made the recipe as is and while the flavor was delicious, and the texture was perfect, it was just waaay too much sugar for breakfast. I should have followed the reviewers advice, but I like to make recipes as originally written the first time. Next time I will use half - Read more ...
  3. I would give this more stars if I could. I made this for a company breakfast and I have one word for it. AWESOME! I wouldn't say it has anything to do with butterscotch at all though. I quadrupled the recipe because I had about 12 people to feed. I also took 3 apples, peeled - Read more ...
  4. I followed the advice of some reviewers and cut the amount of sugar in half, and still found it way too sweet. I've made the following modifications and LOVE IT!

  7. This recipe is excellent exactly as is. My family loves it and has been known to eat it right out of the pot! It's so easy to experiment with. We like to add sliced apples and bananas occasionally and we have successfully tried it with half a teaspoon of Nutella mixed into our bowls after - Read more ...
  8. The creamiest oatmeal ever. This is one of those recipes that you'll wish you had years ago - what a great idea to cook oatmeal in milk and eggs. Didn't give it 5 stars because it needs less sugar - maybe 1/3 cup next time - and more milk - at least 2 cups. Used - Read more ...
  9. Definitely my new favorite way to have oatmeal. I like sweet things, but upon the advice of other reviewers, I cut the brown sugar down to 1/4 cup and it was plenty sweet. I also used egg beaters and cut the butter down to 2 teaspoons instead of 2 tablespoons just to make this a - Read more ...
