Eggnog Oatmeal

Morning Eggnog Oatmeal

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2 cup uncooked old-fashioned oats
  • 2/3 cup reduced fat milk
  • 1/3 cup light eggnog (such as 40% reduced fat)

Optional toppings

  • Cinnamon
  • Raisins
  • Sliced banana
  • Chopped nuts

DIRECTIONS

In a medium saucepan over low heat, combine oats, milk and eggnog. Cover and slowly bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally until until oats are desired consistency, approximately 10-12 minutes for the creamier version pictured.
