That's what I'm craving...namely a big bowl of REAL (non-rolled) Irish oatmeal, cooked slowly so each oat kind of pops between your teeth. Meltingly creamy, with a bit of brown sugar or honey for the top, some cream to pour over, maybe some warm apples on top as well. And then...I crumble some of my side order of very crisp bacon on top. YUM! Yes, I know it's perverse that I crave this in hot, humid July in NYC, but I'm just that kind of girl.
Where can I find this? I've had inconsistent luck at the Popover Cafe (sometimes mushy oatmeal)and Avenue. Where else? I sometimes cook McCann's Oats using a great recipe from the next to last Cook's Illustrated, but sometimes I'm just feeling lazy, y'know?
