Unlike quick-cooking oats, old-fashioned oatmeal has time to turn extra-creamy and luscious with just a few minutes more of cooking time. With a bit of milk and the toppings of your choice, old-fashioned oats can be your go-to morning staple for filling, healthy breakfasts.

  • Ready In

  1. Stovetop: Combine water (or milk) and salt in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil. Stir in oats and reduce heat to medium; cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes. Remove from heat, cover and let stand for 2 to 3 minutes.
  2. Microwave: Combine water (or milk), salt and oats in a 2-cup microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on High for 2½ to 3 minutes. Stir before serving.
  3. Top with milk, sweetener, cinnamon, dried fruits or nuts, if desired.
  • Tip: People with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity should use oats that are labeled "gluten-free," as oats are often cross-contaminated with wheat and barley.
