This is seriously one of the best things I've eaten in a long time. I made this on the stove instead of in the microwave, used half fat free evaporated milk/half regular 2% milk and I poured a little cold fat free evaporated milk over the top along with the brown sugar and pecans. All of us LOVED this oatmeal and wished there was more for seconds. But there was not. Next time, I'll double it. Excellent for cold winter mornings. Read More

I tried this after cooking but before adding the optional ingredients--way too much salt and not enough pumpkin. The saltiness was OK after I added brown sugar but there still wasn't much pumpkin flavor. If I make this again I'll omit the salt and increase the pumpkin. Read More

I thought this was pretty good. Definitely better than most pumpkin oatmeal recipes I have tried. I only had quick oats so I had to use those. I would definitely recommend the rolled oats. I made 1/2 recipe and it made 4-5 servings. So the actual recipe written as is would make at least 8 servings and not 4. I microwaved it for 8 minutes and it seemed just right. Be patient it will take at least that long to thicken and the liquid to absorb. I sprinkled mine with the optional brown sugar and pecans. I definitely recommend them. I probably added a little more brown sugar than suggested. I then added milk to my dish as I always do with oatmeal. Read More

This was fantastic! My husband accidentally bought quick cooking oats so I decreased the cooking time to 6 minutes in the microwave. I love that it's easy to control the amount of sugar in this recipe--less for me a little more for my kids. This will be a Fall staple in our house. I can make up a batch and reheat servings before school. Thanks for sharing! Read More

My family really liked it. I made it with almond milk - in order to be dairy free. Much more filling than ordinary oatmeal. Read More

Follow recipe to the letter. But mine was super thick after 6 min. Nice flavor. Might make large batch and put in crockpot to cook overnight for an easy breakfast with company. Read More

I made it as written except for using a whole can of pumpkin which is about 1 1/2 cups. Microwaved for 10 minutes. It tasted really bland. I added 1/4 cup brown sugar and 3 shakes of pumpkin pie seasoning. Then it tasted too heavily of ginger to the point it sickened me. I think if I were to make it again I'd double the spices (except for ginger) skip the pumpkin pie spice that I had added add the 1/4 cup brown sugar and probably stick to 1 cup of pumpkin. The only thing that somewhat saved it was adding some chocolate chips. Still threw out most of the batch. The kids didn't like it either. I just don't think the combination is right. Read More

The oatmeal didn't have the amount of flavor I was looking for. It was pretty good though. I might make it again. I had to add a little bit of whip cream to cool it. I liked how easy and quick it was. Read More
