Chocolate-Berry Oatmeal Brulée
We love oatmeal that has delicious ingredients added. This version is a keeper!
3 cups water
2 cups old-fashioned oatmeal
Pinch of salt (about ¼ teaspoon)
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1 cup mixed berries (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries)
½ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ cup dark brown sugar
In medium saucepan, bring water to gentle boil (watch carefully); stir in oats and salt. Return to boil; reduce heat to medium. Cook 5 minutes or until most of liquid is absorbed, stirring occasionally.
Remove from heat and stir in butter, berries and chocolate chips. Combine cinnamon and brown sugar in a small bowl. Butter 4 ramekins and scoop oatmeal mixture into them. Sprinkle brown sugar and cinnamon mixture on top of each. Place under broiler and broil under brown sugar starts to bubble (watch closely). Serve hot.
