Happy Thanksgiving!! It’s almost here. And if you have family or friends to feed for breakfast on that busy morning– while your basting the turkey, setting the table, peeling potatoes and turning out pies– here’s a quick filling bowl of breakfast that will hold them over until the big meal later in the day.
PUMPKIN SPICE OATMEAL
1 cup “quick oats” oatmeal*
1 cup milk
1 cup water
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree
1/4 cup brown sugar
In a microwave proof mixing bowl, stir together the oats, milk, water, salt, pumpkin pie spice, pumpkin puree and brown sugar. Pop it into the microwave and cook 1 minute on high. Give it a stir and cook one minute more.
Spoon it into bowls and top with the pecans and maple syrup. Makes 2 to 3 servings. Eat it while it’s hot!
*Quick oats are the big cylindrical box that say “cooks in 1 minutes.”
