It’s not really a recipe, more of a formula, so I’m offering it here free.
2 oz. Old-fashioned rolled oats
1.5 oz. Bob’s Red Mill Seven Grain Hot Cereal (or 5- or 10-grain, but I prefer the 7 grain)
1 oz. raisins
1.75 cups water
Microwave in a really big bowl (Ours is 3 qt.) for 4 minutes 50 seconds, then let sit for at least 4 minutes.
Stir in about 1-2 oz. milk (in my bowl, enough so there’s a solid layer of milk over the oats)
Microwave for another 3.4-5 minutes, depending on the ambient moisture and your texture desires.
Serve with butter, brown sugar/maple syrup, and/or walnuts to taste.
(we do about 1/2 tsp butter, 1 TBS brown sugar, and a small handful of walnuts)
Cut the raisins down to 1/2 an oz. or eliminate; dice one apple and toss in with the water. Stir, microwave, continue.
(Add 1 tsp salt if you want)
Cook down two slices of thick-sliced bacon (we use jowl bacon) until your preferred texture.
Cut down or eliminate milk; add a TBS of the bacon fat and water to texture at the milk point.
Combine variations one and two; skip lunch.
