1 cup Rolled Oats (Gluten Free)
1 cup Water
1 cup Milk
Pinch of Salt
The cranberries can be made in one of two ways:
One, you add all the next ingredients below EXCEPT the juice right in with the Oats as they cook (you will end up with red oatmeal but .....Also, reduce the fruit down to 3/4 cup Cranberries and 1/2 cup Strawberries.
Two in a separate sauce pan:
1 cup Fresh Cranberries
1 cup Fresh or Frozen Strawberries or Raspberries or combination, cut up
1/4 cup Sugar
1/3 cup Apple Juice
1/4 tsp Cinnamon (I use a small Cinnamon stick)
1/4 tsp Nutmeg
1/4 or slightly less tsp Ground Cloves
1/4 tsp Ginger
Optional but I recommend: 1/4 tsp Cardamon
In a sauce pan add from the Cranberries down to Ginger. Turn on low and let simmer until thick (liquid is mostly reduce) a little over 15 minutes
Put the Oats, water and milk into another sauce pan and turn on low. Let it simmer until thick, about 15 minutes. The cranberries will pop (most of them). I like to have some whole cranberries in mine. The strawberries you may have to mush a bit if you don't want whole fruit or large pieces.
Place Oats in a bowl and top with the cranberry sauce and walnut or pieces of whole fruit. Serve with bacon (or not your preference)
