Hot Oatmeal for breakfast, can't get it right.

Rick | Jan 11, 2008 08:49 AM

I order a nice cup of hot oatmeal at a food stand at an auto auction I go to and I just love it. Add in some brown sugar and some raisins and it's a great start to the day. At home I use quaker oats, follow the instructions, and end up with grainy, tasteless bowls of mush that I throw away. I suspect I'm using the wrong type of oatmeal for the texture I'm after but don't know what to buy. The oatmeal i like has a very nice texture, is stiff, without being able to feel each individual oat in my mouth. In fact it looks nothing like the oatmeal I make, rather it looks like little pieces of broken rice. What should I be buying to make hot oatmeal?
