1 Comments for "Savory Oatmeal"

Sherman Extension used this in the fall of 2019 as part of an afterschool teen cooking class for youth at Sherman School.  The teens were highly suspicous of the recipe, as they were used to "sweet" not savory oatmeal.  However, when it was cooking, they started sniffing and making comments like "that smells good".  Upon sampling, one of the boys pronounced it "awesome, like rice-a-roni" and finished off the whole pan AND took home a copy of the recipe!
