I hope you enjoyed our first post in our Back To School Series. Today we have a bonus post for you because September 2 is Grits for Breakfast Day!
My kids love hot cereal but sometimes these recipes can be time consuming because they require careful monitoring of the stove to make sure the pot doesn’t boil over or the food doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pot. Constant stirring of grits or oatmeal can certainly delay the process of getting ready for school in the morning. So when I was introduced to the Lekue Oatmeal Cooker I was intrigued.
- Could I truly make oatmeal and grits in the microwave and still have them taste fresh and creamy like I was used to using stove top cooking?
- Would it really save me time in the morning?
- And even though it’s called and “oatmeal” cooker, could I use it for other things like grits, cream of wheat or porridge?
So I set off testing recipes and I’m pretty sure we had oatmeal or grits every morning in the office for at least a week! It was such a hit that each lady in our office ended up ordering their own and I ordered a second one as a birthday present for my brother who would eat grits morning, noon and night if he could!
