This is a very good recipe. Double it and take it to a potluck brunch - it's a good alternative to all the egg dishes. I like it without added milk, doesn't seem like you need it. Toasted walnut & brown sugar on top is just the right touch.

Not sure if my post went through so I'll try it again. This was awesome and made me a fan of cooked oatmeal. Other than in cookie form of course. I made it Saturday and it's gone. I will make it again this weekend.
