I've tried oatmeal cooked all different ways, and just haven't found any method that makes it really appealing to me, until now! My sister shared her "instant-style" oatmeal:
2 parts rolled oats
3 parts boiling water
dash of salt
Combine in a cereal bowl, cover with an inverted luncheon plate and let sit for 10-15 min.
The picture shows it served with sauteed apples, with some brown sugar and cinnamon.
