10 Dishes To Make With Oatmeal

Let’s face it.  On its own, oatmeal just isn’ t seen as sexy enough for breakfast, but if you really and truly do think that, then you’re missing out on a fabulous food to start the day, and much more besides.  There’s more to oatmeal than just porridge, although porridge is a fine meal in a bowl.

Porridge and Strawberries

I’ve had a scour round the internet for some of my favourite oatmeal recipes, and new ones I’d like to try.

Hamlyn’s very kindly sent me some of their goodies, and I need to get cooking some lovely dishes.  They’ve been making Scottish porridge since 1888, and are pretty well known in my neck of the woods as a go to brand.  The oats are grown and milled in Scotland and recently added sachets and porridge pots to their range of products.  Check them out here.


Dishes To Make With Oatmeal

1 – Strawberry Oatmeal Breakfast Smoothie

This looks amazing with a lovely deep pink colour with bananas, strawberries and oats.  I wouldn’t use the sugar in this recipe, but I suspect I’ll be trying a form of this quite soon.

2 – Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal from Annie’s Eats

I absolutely love apple and cinnamon together, both as scents for my house, and food to eat.  I don’t yet know what this would taste like, but I’d love to try it.

3 – Boyndie Broth – Oatmeal Soup

A Hamlyn’s recipe and knowing my perchant for soups, it’s one that I’ll very likely try a few versions of.  They say it is a “very economical, velvety and elegant soup which is quickly and easily prepared. The addition of good undyed smoked haddock or smoked salmon makes a good alternative to Cullen Skink.”

4 – My Own Traditional Scottish Oatcakes

5 – Oatmeal Raisin Cookies by Simply Recipes

I think everyone’s grandmother around here used to make cookies or biscuits like these.  I do have to admit to letting my kids lick the bowl though.

6 – Skirlie (Oatmeal Stuffing)

This is a lovely simple recipe and is exactly how I make mine.

7 – My Rhubarb Crumble

 8 – Oatmeal Bread

I wouldn’t have thought of using oatmeal in my bread, so finding this recipe was quite nice.

9 – Chai Oatmeal

A creamy bowl of goodness with coriander, cinnamon and turmeric.

10 – Cuban Style Oatmeal

Blackbeans, green peppers, onions, cumin and more.  A new twist for a full meal.  I’d be temped to add chicken to this.
