Grandma Louise's Oatmeal with Grated Apple
When we visited my grandmother in snowy Alsace, she used to serve us this delicious and filling breakfast, rich in fiber and fruity nutrients. It is still one of my favorite winter breakfasts: true baby food for adults. My grandmother usually served her oatmeal variation with freshly baked brioche or kugelhopf (a wonderful cake with raisins and almonds that is one of the great specialties of Alsace). Today, I sometimes find it a filling meal unto itself, and I skip the bread. If I want a little more protein, I have a bite of cheese or some yogurt.
- 1 cup old-fashioned oatmeal
- 2 1/3 cups water
- Pinch of salt
- 1 medium apple, coarsely grated
- 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1/3 cup milk
- 1/2 teaspoon butter
