Since my childhood, I've always had oatmeal for breakfast, made with old fashioned Quaker Oats. Recently, with induction, I've been able to recreate that dish for one, by adding a cup of oats to 2 cups of boiling water/2% milk mix, turning the energy setting to a strong simmer, stirring until nearly all the water is absorbed: about 10 minutes. I serve with brown sugar and 2% milk--sometimes add raisins. This is similar to what I've been served in restaurants.
