You will need:
3 c water
1 c milk
1 1/2 c rolled oats
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
2 apples peeled, cored and cubed
(any fruit can be substituted like peaches, mangoes, raisins, cranberries or bananas)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
4 tsp butter
3 tsp honey or brown sugar
In a large saucepan, bring the water to a boil.
Combine milk, oats, apples and cinnamon; quickly stir into the boiling water.
Add fruit that needs to be softened now. Like apples or peaches.
Return the mixture to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 5 to 10 minutes, or until the mixture is the desired thickness.
Remove from heat and add eggs one at a time and vanilla.
Do not worry about the eggs. The hot porridge will cook them completely.
Add fruit that does not need to be softened now. Like raisins, dried cranberries, or nuts.
Divide the porridge between 4 bowls.
Top each one with a teaspoon of butter and drizzle with honey or brown sugar.
