Oatmeal for a Crowd

We had our first Christmas party today, a brunch with the family, and since everyone likes oatmeal I figured we’d try it. It was easy and delicious! We each topped it with different stuff and everyone was happy.

4 cups old fashioned oats
5 cups water
2 cups milk
pinch salt

Bring water and milk and salt to a boil. Add oatmeal and cook over medium heat for 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
If you’re serving it to a crowd and need to leave it on the stove for a little while, cover and add boiling water to thin as needed.

Serve with a bunch of toppings for a buffet. I set up bowls of raisins, dried cranberries, chopped bananas, chopped apples, cinnamon, cinnamon sugar, maple syrup, and walnuts.

Serves 8.
