  For those of us that don't prefer cereal to start our days yet still like a quick breakfast.

 

  I'm just curious as I've seen a wide variety of how people flavor up their oatmeal and grits so I'm curious how you all do it. And that pre flavored crap in a package doesn't count -.-

 

For me:

 

Strawberry preserves

or

Brown sugar and raisins in my Oatmeal

 

Chopped up sausage in ma grits with a pinch of salt and sometimes with a fried egg on top.

Oatmeal with skim milk. 

 

Minnesotans don't eat grits. I have never even seen them in my life. 


I am the reason we can't have nice things.

 So you're telling me, aside from a little skim milk, you eat your oatmeal plain  :sick: At least with flavoring of some sort it's like eating flavored snot, but plain is just disgusting lol.

I like my oats to have the consistency of paste. I add fresh/dried fruits, nuts, peanut butter, chocolate chips, etc.

Oatmeal: Brown sugar or maple syrup.

Grits: Sugar, or maple syrup, or cheese, or butter. I also put them over scrambled eggs and eat them plain with some salt. :)

+1  Always liked it "paste" like. My dad would tease me that I was eating glue or that we could put tiles up with it...
