Breakfast is one of the most boring and repetitive meals of the day. However, this fun recipes can add character to your oats without making you late for work. Pick up an inexpensive torch from home depot, some fruit, sugar, and oatmeal and you can have a healthy, creative meal that will wow you, your significant other, and kids!
“One thing I’ve learned is to pass up the expensive mini torches you find in gourmet specialty shops and head to your local home center to pick up an industrial torch. An adjustable nozzle with a built-in lighter and a can of propane should only set you back 10-15 dollars, compared to the 30-40 you’ll shell out for the gourmet ones. The bigger flame you get with the Home Depot special will also allow you to evenly caramelize the sugar much faster, and more economically (source).”
- Make the oats according to the instructions.
- Place it in a heat proof bowl and add your desired fruit on top.
- Sprinkle the fruit with a spoonful of sugar distributed evenly over the top of the fruit.
- Ignite the torch and sweep it evenly over the sugar. The flame should be 3-4 inches away from the sugar.
When you’re done, the color of the sugar should be light brown and crispy. Serve and enjoy! If you want to add extra flavor to your fancy morning meal, try using vanilla sugar.
