Oatmeal pie crust
1 1/2 cups All purpose flour
1 1/2 cups Quick cooking oats
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 cups brown sugar packed
1 cup Butter softened
1 cup walnuts chopped, optional

1. Combine flour & baking soda; stir in oats & brown sugar. Cut in softened butter, mixing well, using your hands if needed to combine all ingredients thoroughly.
2. Press into two 8-inch pie pans or a 9x13-inch baking pan.
3. If using precooked filling, bake pie at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
NOTE: When using fresh fruits, such as peaches for apples, precook in pan with butter and brown sugar, along with 1 teaspoon lemon juice, cooking down until thickened. You don't want the fruit watery when pouring into crust. For 3 cups of fruit, use 1/2 cup butter and 1 cup brown sugar.
Will make enough crust for TWO 8-inch pies or used as a crust for fruity bar cookies.

Mark Bittman's Oatmeal with Scallions and Soy Sauce
- from
- serves one -
1 cup rolled oats (steel cut is my personal recommendation)
2 cups water
2 teaspoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon scallions for stirring, 1 teaspoon for garnish
A couple shakes of sea salt
1. Combine water, salt, and oats in a medium saucepan and turn the heat to high. When the water boils, turn to low and cook, stirring frequently, until the water is just about absorbed (about 5 minutes).
2. Turn off heat, stirring in 1 tablespoon of scallions and soy sauce while the pot cools down. Sprinkle that last teaspoon of scallions on top for extra crunch.

fully admitting steel cut are best, it's possible to make oatmeal palatable, speaking of Original Quakers Rolled Oats.. but like making coffee, it takes the correct water temp.

Then, butter and a bit of milk to cool it, and some maple syrup if possible, turbinado or brown sugar if not. The trick is to swell the salted oats with boiling water, then wait a bit, add butter and stir, add milk and stir, add sweetener and half stir.. so there are various tastes mingled, not one taste.

I make an oatmeal walnut cookie thats kinda sinful, but mostly cause of too much nuts and butter and brown sugar. Brown crispy edges and kinda greasy sorta high calorie sinful.

oatmeal patties

I have actually never tried these, but I have lots of oatmeal in my preps from the LDS cannery and think this recipe could be a good entree. I know I should try it soon.

Oatmeal Patties in Mushroom Gravy
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Oatmeal Patties

3 cups of oats
1 ½ cups almond meal
½ sweet onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 can cream of mushroom soup
2 tablespoons of finely chopped sweet basil
2 eggs, lightly beaten

Oatmeal patties are easier to form than hamburgers.
Chop onion and basil. Put all ingredients in a bowl. Mix well by hand. Let it sit for 10 minutes. Form patties by hand the way you would form hamburgers. Fry in hot olive oil until lightly brown. Turn over and brown the other side. This will make about 7 or 8 patties.

Mushroom Gravy
3 cans cream of mushroom soup
2 ½ cans almond milk
2 cloves finely chopped garlic
2 tablespoons finely chopped sweet basil

Put all ingredients in a bowl and whisk well. Pout a thin layer in the bottom of a glass baking dish. Lay the patties in the dish. Spoon gravy over each patty. Pour any remainder in the dish. Cover with aluminum foil. Bake at 375 degrees for about 30 minutes or until gravy is bubbly. Serve with mashed potatoes with gravy on top.
