The best oatmeal I've ever had. No need to top this with sugar afterwards. Good with or without milk.

Definitely my new favorite way to have oatmeal. I like sweet things but upon the advice of other reviewers I cut the brown sugar down to 1/4 cup and it was plenty sweet. I also used egg beaters and cut the butter down to 2 teaspoons instead of 2 tablespoons just to make this a little healthier. Very good thank you for the recipe.

I followed the recipe to a T and was very disappointed in the outcome. To me it tasted more like pure sugar than butterscotch. I'd have been better off stirring in butterscotch chips to achieve that flavor which I'll try next time I have a hankering.

The creamiest oatmeal ever. This is one of those recipes that you'll wish you had years ago - what a great idea to cook oatmeal in milk and eggs. Didn't give it 5 stars because it needs less sugar - maybe 1/3 cup next time - and more milk - at least 2 cups. Used quick oats instead of rolled. This was so good that I actually saved the leftovers (who saves leftover oatmeal???) and warmed it in the microwave with extra milk the next day.

This recipe is excellent exactly as is. My family loves it and has been known to eat it right out of the pot! It's so easy to experiment with. We like to add sliced apples and bananas occasionally and we have successfully tried it with half a teaspoon of Nutella mixed into our bowls after serving. Very good recipe overall. Thank you!

delicious. Add the milk egg and brown sugar to a cool pan and gradually bring the heat up to keep the egg from just being a scrambled egg in your milk. Make sure you whisk the egg well and continue to stir as the heat rises. You can cut the sugar back to 1/4 or 1/3 cup. 1/2 would be way too sweet. As written it makes two good sized bowls or 3 quite small servings. This is the best oatmeal we've ever had:)

Made this for breakfast today and it was GREAT!! I am a huge fan of oatmeal and this is now the recipe I will use. I used only 1/4 cup of brown sugar and it was "just right". I added raisins during the cooking in order to soften them rather than adding them after cooking. To cut calories use brown sugar Splenda and egg substitute and low fat milk. This is a very versatile recipe so on future oatmeal mornings I'm going to try adding 1/4 cup chopped apples and a 2 Tbsps of pecans and a tsp of cinnamon or put sliced bananas on the oatmeal after cooking. Try this recipe and you will NEVER eat instant oatmeal again (ugh). Make this the night before put it in the fridge and heat it up in the microwave the the morning. Thanks for a great recipe!!

I followed the advice of some reviewers and cut the amount of sugar in half and still found it way too sweet. I've made the following modifications and LOVE IT! I've always choked down my oatmeal now I look forward to this every morning. I use Vanilla Almond Breeze instead of milk. So I use 1 cup Vanilla Almond Breeze 3/4 cup water only 1 tablespoon of sugar 1 cup of oats and no butter. It comes out very creamy plenty sweet. This amount for us makes two servings 250 calories each serving.

Wow this is sweet. I made the recipe as is and while the flavor was delicious and the texture was perfect it was just waaay too much sugar for breakfast. I should have followed the reviewers advice but I like to make recipes as originally written the first time. Next time I will use half the amount of sugar.

I just made this for breakfast on our first snowy sunday morning with some fresh squeezed orange juice fresh fruit whole grain toast and it was absolutely wonderful. I did reduce the sugar to just under 1/4 c. used skim milk and added walnuts after it was cooked. Husband wanted fat laden breakfast so didn't want me to make this and believe it or not he raved. It was wonderful fast and really easy and I highly recommend it. I will make this often and even for company. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did and... LET IT SNOW!!

I would give this more stars if I could. I made this for a company breakfast and I have one word for it. AWESOME! I wouldn't say it has anything to do with butterscotch at all though. I quadrupled the recipe because I had about 12 people to feed. I also took 3 apples peeled and sliced and sauteed them up in butter brown sugar and cinnamon. After they were done I stirred them into the oatmeal. Fantastic! It was by far the creamist oatmeal I have ever eaten.
