It’s January, that means I need to lose some pounds. Oatmeal’s a good way to start the day, when watching calories. We can thank Alton Brown for this technique.
Bring the water and a half cup of the milk and salt to a boil in a small pan.
Place a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the butter and when it's melted add the oats. Stir for a few minutes or until the oats smell slightly toasty.
Add the boiling water/milk to the oats pot and reduce heat to maintain a simmer for 25 minutes, without stirring.
Add the remaining milk gently stir into the oatmeal and cook for an additional 10 minutes. Spoon into a serving bowl.
