Irish Oatmel - how to speed up?

Diane in Bexley | Mar 17, 2008 08:33 AM

Sent DH to TJs for McCann's quick cooking Irish oatmeal. He brought home the 30 minute long cooking kind. Didn't realize until he already opened it up. Can I whirl this in the food processor and will it magically become the 5-10 min kind I prefer? I am the only one in the house who eats oatmeal and don't really have 30 min to let it cook. Usually add oatmeal as extender to meatloaf, can I use this stuff? It looks very different from the oatmeal I am used to, more like pearled barley. What can I do to speed up cooking time? Thanks!
