Oatmeal Recipes...from around the blogsphere

Chicken Fried Steak (from the Prudent Homemaker)

2 2/3 cups old-fashioned oats
1/4 cup dried onions1
1/2 - 2 cups water
2 eggs
2 tsp sage
2 tsp Lawry's chicken and poultry seasoning, or 2 tsp McCormick Montreal Steak seasoning, or 2 tsp of another steak or chicken seasoning mix
3 Tbsp oil for frying Sauce
2 cans cream of mushroom soup
3 cups reconstituted powdered milk

Heat oil in a large skillet with a lid. Mix first six ingredients. It should be wet and stick together well. If it does not, add enough water until it does.

Form into six patties, and fry both sides until browned.

Lower heat to simmer.

Pour gravy on patties and flip them over to coat both sides.

Cover and simmer on low for 10-15 minutes, checking occasionally to make sure that patties don’t stick or burn.

Serve with mashed potatoes or noodles.

Serves 6.

Oatmeal Pancakes

No recipe...sorry. I just add about 1/2 cup to one cup of oatmeal to the batter. Use your favorite pancake or waffle recipe and just add the oatmeal...sticks to your ribs!

Kelly, how did they turn out? I'm gonna give 'em a try first chance I get.

I jsut ate one, and yum-yum :o) I had to make some adjustments though. I didn't have any dried fruit in the house, so I just used peanuts instead. We're nut lovers, so they were quite tasty.
