Posts like this are one of the things that make this such a terrific site. I kid you not, I was getting ready to post something about oatmeal because I was getting bored with plan old brown sugar and you beat me to it bacpacjac. Thanks!

I will throw into the mix instead of brown sugar and cinnamon, use a glob of honey and cinnamon. Those little squeeze bears of honey work well if you are hiking. Just make sure and double bag it in zip loc baggies in case that virtually useless cap comes off.

Cheers,

LW

Muesli like I just had for breakfast at a hotel in Munich - it wasn't the dry muslix that I've had a few times and didn't like, this was oats soaked in some combination of cream and apples and some fruit that made it all particularly tasty. Now I look on Wikipedia and realize there's a whole faction of muesli eating world that I've missed out on for 50 years, who knew. I'm a whole oats heated and eaten with brown sugar and a splash of milk kind of guy, but for the next while I'll be experimenting with muesli recipes.

It is at least conceivable to use oatmeal in any savory recipe involving rice or wheat: a hamburger/tomato/onion/oatmeal concoction, or sausage and oatmeal stuffed peppers. This is kind of what is going on with haggis, if one ignores the sheep bits, and of haggis it is said '...As the 2001 English edition of the Larousse Gastronomique puts it, "Although its description is not immediately appealing, haggis has an excellent nutty texture and delicious savoury flavour".'

Anyone tried this? My audience at home is a to gastronomically conservative to accept this sort of tinkering.

I have had haggis exactly once, at Contin in the Scottish highlands, and it was truly delicious and savory. For many foods, it is best to not be too curious about the ingredients and the manner of their assembly.

Now that is the best use of oatmeal I have seen so far!!! LOL

Not so good for backpacking, but still a good use of it.

I am definitely going to go in search of that version of Oatmeal. Maybe BevMo ...

Too early in the day to be even thinking about such goodness..
