I chose Granny's Oatmeal as my first recipe to share on the blog because it's one that isn't only delicious, it's very sentimental. My Granny Little (My Dad's mom) used to make this for me each time I would visit her. At risk of sounding cheesy, one bite of it wraps me in warmth and love! I loved making this for y'all when you were little on a cold rainy evening. Breakfast for dinner was always a hit!
This recipe is about as far from healthy as it gets but it's so good and definitely one to make when you need a little comfort food.
Granny's Oatmeal Recipe
I would be remiss to share this recipe and not share the story that I ALWAYS tell when I cook this.
Once I was staying with my Granny and she made me oatmeal and topped with milk as usual. She wasn't eating any herself so she didn't realize she had poured sour milk on top until later in the day when she went to get a glass of milk. She immediately realized it was rotten and remembered I had it for breakfast. She felt so bad and went on and on about it and how she couldn't believe I didn't say anything. It was pretty awful but I didn't want to hurt her feelings or embarrass her at all. That was me as a kid in a nutshell, I wanted everyone to be happy even if it meant drinking sour milk. I definitely grew out of that and will never forget her telling me I should always speak up!
I hope you enjoy making Granny's Oatmeal!
