I have been making this for my family for years, they love it. This is a very hearty dish. It has a nice bite, and the oats stay separated, not mushy of gummy.
We add cinnamon and either brown sugar or maple syrup. Usually any combination of raisins, nuts, chopped or dried fruit works really well....just play with it. Easily doubles or triples, but the liquid may need to be cut back just a wee bit.
1 1/2 cup Quaker Oats (I use Old Fashioned, uncooked)
1 egg beaten
3T butter for pan
3/4 cup water
1/4 tsp salt
Mix the oats and egg in a bowl, toss until oats are thoroughly coated.
Melt butter in a 10-inch skillet over medium high to high heat, pour in oats, cook, stirring constantly, 3 to 5 minutes or until oats are dry, separated and toasted. Add water and salt; continue cooking, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes or until liquid evaporates.
