This is my favorite way to use leftover oatmeal and cranberry sauce. Here is a recipe for my favorite homemade cranberry sauce:
2 cups Sugar
1 cup Pineapple Juice, from reserved juice
1 cup Water
1 - 20 ounce can Pineapple Tid Bits, juice reserved
6 cups Fresh Whole Cranberries
Combine sugar, juice and water in large pot. Bring to boil.
Add cranberries. Bring back to boil. Reduce heat. simmer gently for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add pineapple. Continue cooking another 5 minutes.
Move to container. Cover and cool completely. Refrigerate before serving.
Okay, now for the Christmas Oatmeal. What I do is warm up leftover oatmeal in a sauce pan with about 1/2 to 1 cup vanilla soy milk. As the oatmeal warms, break it apart with a wooden spoon. Once it is warmed through, mash with a potato masher to get desired consistency.
In a small bowl, dessert size works well, spoon about two tablespoons of your leftover cranberry sauce into the bottom. Top cranberry sauce with warmed oatmeal and sprinkle with brown sugar. Can you say, "YUM!"?
I absolutely love this, and I hope you enjoy it as well.
