So, I am a very very lazy person when it comes to waking up early in the morning… much like the larger proportion of the world’s population (wink wink)!
Which, my dear ones makes planning breakfast meals an uphill task for me on a majority of the days, as the first thing I have to brain storm is what to prepare in a jiffy? In short, the constant morning struggle is what to plan for first; breakfast or lunch or better still brunch J
Now, here is such an incredible breakfast dish that takes mere 15 minutes, from start to finish, and fills you up like any god damn loaded sandwich (minus the billions of calories a ‘cheese oozing sandwich’ will fill you up with…)!! I loved this dish so much that it has become my lazy morning’s favorite and can you believe my luck… surprisingly though the two food-snobs of my family also relish it. WHAT A RELIEF!!
In a sauce pan with thick base add milk, beaten egg, brown sugar.
Put the sauce pan on medium flame and whisk the ingredients thoroughly until well combined. Cook the milk and egg mixture for about 2 minutes on medium flame.
Simmer and add oats to the milk mixture. Cook on simmer until the mixture is slightly thick in consistency while stirring the ingredients continuously. Turn off the heat and top up the oat meal with butter.
Transfer the oat meal in to the serving bowl and top it up with raisins and sliced almonds. Serve hot and enjoy.
Make sure you do not over cook the milk and egg mixture to a thick paste. You must keep a tab on the consistency of the mix else you will have a thick lumpy mass to serve in the end. It is very important to stir the oatmeal mixture continuously else you will have lumps of scrambled egg floating in the milk. In case the butterscotch oat meal turns thick for your preference and add a half cup of low fat milk and half cup of water, and stir it well in to the oat meal mix. To reduce the calorie intake of oat meal you may use low fat milk and omit adding brown sugar to balance the sweetness and a few chunks of chopped dates instead of raisins.
