Strawberries and Cream Cooked Oats

Hearty Strawberries and Cream Cooked OatsIt’s the sweet strawberry time of year and last weekend I had some leftover whipped cream with strawberries from a shortcake dessert. I cooked oatmeal one morning with my usual add of nuts for a heartier breakfast and topped it with whipped cream and strawberries. It was a hit with a drizzle of honey perfection.

Strawberries and Cream Cooked Oats

  • 3/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup quick cook steel cut oats
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 1/2 pint heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 6-8 fresh strawberries
  • a drizzle of raw honey

In a medium saucepan bring water and salt to a boil. Reduce heat to low and add the oats. Cook for 5-6 minutes or until desired consistency, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and stir in pecans.

While oatmeal is cooking put whipping cream in high speed blender and whip until a peak is formed. Add a touch of 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. Wash and slice strawberries.

Serve warm cooked oats with whipped cream, strawberries and a bit o’ honey on top. Serves 2-3.

    Here in Minnesota I used to work with someone who grew up in the same area as you. She also spoke with a high level of fondness about the region. It must be nice there! My wife Rita & I plan to try this recipe soon! Thank You for sharing. -Dan
