Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

Truth is, I'm not a breakfast eater. My family on the other hand, loves it! Breakfast for breakfast, breakfast for lunch or breakfast for dinner - they don't care! Not only am I not a breakfast fan, but I am especially not a fan of oatmeal. Sorry, I just don't like it. It's a texture thing. Don't get me wrong - I like it in cookies - just not like "oatmeal." My kiddos wanted to have breakfast for dinner the other night ..... and I really did not feel like having pancakes or waffles .... so I decided to make this Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal. 'Tis the season, right?!

I was actually surprised at how much I enjoyed this - the flavor anyways, not so much the texture. LOL. I'm still working on that part! I know oatmeal is good for you (and maybe it's good for me - notice how I did that?!) and I probably should consider adding more of it to my breakfast routine - instead of my normal toast and coffee. I even thought about drizzling some maple syrup on this to make it mo' betta! Hindsight is 20/20 ... maybe next time! The kids absolutely loved this and wanted it again for breakfast the next day ..... they are so deprived, can't ya tell?

We had this with sausage links and fresh fruit on the side .... it made for an especially economical meal that was fairly healthy for us!

  1. I can't get enough of breakfast or oatmeal, so I guess I'm with your kids. This sounds like a great fall dish. I need to re-stock my canned pumpkin supply- tis the season!

  2. Jamie, I absolutely love oatmeal - I don't get to eat as often as I'd like, but I am definitely trying this. It sounds and looks delicious! Thanks for the recipe and inspiration - pinning! Have a great Wednesday!

  3. I want this for breakfast right now! I'll take the quesadilla to! :)

  4. That looks delicious! I think I may just try it! I like my oatmeal extra sweet & cinnamon-y so this sounds perfect!

    Stopping by from the Wonderful Food Wednesday hop. I'd love it if you'd share this at my weekly Pinterest Party. http://www.adventureswithjude.com/search/label/Sunday%20Sharing

  5. Now, just tell me, old fashioned oats - not the same as Instant I take it? And I've seen some recipes calling for "steel something oats"? The one I'm thinking of {other than the Instant I always buy} needs to cook around half an hour? Which one do you suggest, because I want to try this recipe - yes, also for dinner ..lol!

  6. I've never eaten such a pie, and I'm intrigued as it looks GREAT !!

  7. This sounds yummy! I'll have to make it soon. Thanks for sharing!

  8. Looks delicious! Perfect for fall!

  9. The oatmeal is bound to be good with pumpkin in it!

  10. Hi Jamie, stopping by from Saturday dishes to check out this oatmeal. I have a half a can of pumpkin leftover and this might be the perfect breakfast.

  11. Hi Jamie,

  13. Yummy! The perfect Fall breakfast! I can't wait to try it. Thanks for sharing at Inspire Us Thursday on Organized 31.

  14. Jamie, you're so cute! You crack me up every time you have a breakfast post. What a good mom to give the kids what they want. :) I always eat my oatmeal with maple syrup, toasted pecans and brown sugar. Maybe a little almond milk if it's too thick. Have you tried Steel Cut Oats? You have to chew them, and they take forever to cook, but they have a completely different texture that you might enjoy. :) I am on mushy foods for a couple of days, so this oatmeal will be perfect!!

  15. Oh my goodness!! This looks so good, Jamie! Pinning!
