When I was a kid I didn’t love oatmeal unless of course I could drown it in brown sugar and milk. The exception was my Grandpa’s oatmeal, it was perfect. I loved it. The oats were soaked over-night and there was of course the secret ingredient – Grandpa ‘magic’. I have yet to be able to make it just like Grandpa. Now, I love oatmeal. It’s a go-to breakfast for me and it’s never boring with endless ways to add flavor and punch to this oldie but goodie.
