G and I live near a really cute town here on Whidbey Island called Langley. The shops are fun and the seafood is extraordinary. Right before the Pandemic I took G’s sister to breakfast at the Braeburn. Numm.
Besides my ubiquitous Bloody Mary, I saw something on the menu I had never seen before….Fried Oatmeal. Raise your hand if you have ever seen that menu item. I usually eat corned beef hash there; it’s the bomb diggity. Needless to say I had to give it a try.
It was served with an apple compote, sour cream and a few fresh berries. I didn’t take a picture of the fried oatmeal (I can be such a maroon). but this is basically how I recreated it.
I occasionally have leftover oatmeal and this is the perfect use. Remember how I like using up leftovers. In a good sized bowl, add a cup or 2 of cooked oatmeal. I add a couple tablespoons o milk. Give it a good mix. You want it firm, but not stiff. Melt a couple tablespoon of butter on medium heat. Form the oatmeal into patties. Brown on both sides until warmed through.
I heat up applesauce to top the oatmeal pancakes. I happened to have some oatmeal N the Great made, so I was in business.
*****From the Recipe Box:
You are going to be totally surprised with this breakfast. Give them a try and get back to me. I’m sorry I don’t have actual ingredient amounts, but you look pretty smart and very able to figure it out.
and remember: Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one’s definition of your life; define yourself. Big kiss, Lynn
