Salted Caramel Oats

Salted Caramel Oats
Oh, were just having oats for breakfast this morning. Or as my Calvin (grandpa) used to call them, rolled oats. In an effort to satisfy the overwhelming majority of sweet and savory food lovers in my house I created Salted Caramel Oats. Quick and easy breakfast and even better late night snack. When I was single and newly married I made oat groats for breakfast daily. Everyday I measured, rinsed, rinsed, strained and cooked those little groats in a pan of water over the stove while constantly stirring for 20-25 minutes. It was a labor of love in every sense. I still make them but its more like twice a year and not daily. Now that my kids are older and have to make school carpool and I have to pack lunches and feed dogs we have instant oats for breakfast. See brand in the recipe below.
