Slice and Go Oatmeal Recipe

Eating oatmeal is a great way to add a little health to your day, and with this recipe for Slice and Go Oatmeal, you can make it "to go," so that your gang can enjoy it for breakfast or even as a healthy, quick snack.

6 cups water
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups quick-cooking oats
1/2 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup raisins
3 tablespoons butter, divided

Coat a 5- x 9-inch loaf pan with cooking spray. In a large saucepan over high heat, bring water and salt to a boil. Stir in oats and cook 1 minute. Remove from heat and stir in brown sugar and raisins.

Pour oat mixture into loaf pan, cover, and chill at least 6 hours, or overnight. Remove loaf from pan and cut into 1-inch-thick slices.

In a large skillet over medium heat, melt 1 tablespoon butter. Cook oatmeal slices 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until golden and heated through, adding more butter as necessary.
If you're eating this right away, serve topped with additional brown sugar or warm maple syrup.

This is also a terrific make-ahead dish. When you're ready to serve it, you can just reheat a slice in the microwave for 1 to 2 minutes, or until it's warmed through.

You can even skip Step 5 and just microwave a slice when you're ready to enjoy it! This way, you can eliminate the butter.

For Betty who wanted a recipe using pumpkin pie spice only:
Athena in DE

Subject: Pumpkin Pie Spice

Mary Inquired about using pumpkin pie spice in desserts for her dad - in law who is on a kidney restricted diet. Since he cannot eat pumpkin, you are in luck by trying zucchini as a substitute. Find A pie recipe for Zucchini Pie which probably uses shredded zucchini. Whenever a dessert recipe calls for cinnamon, nutmeg, substitute pumpkin pie spice. I suggest that you try my
recipe for Zucchini Bars that I submitted earlier his year. Substitute pumpkin spice instead of cinnamon. I believe I would use 1 teaspoon instead of 1/2 cinnamon.

4 cups chopped peaches
2 cups sugar or can use splenda
1/2 cup water
