Do you have leftover cranberry sauce? I have several recipes to share of ways to use up that sauce before it goes bad.
First is a cranberry oatmeal. So Simple, and so tasty! This is a single serve recipe, as I made it for myself one day. Just double, triple or quadruple as needed.
Start like you would making any oatmeal. I prefer milk to water in this oatmeal, it makes it so creamy! Bring it to a boil, add your oats and cook. When it is almost finished, add in your cranberry sauce. Continue to cook for another minute.
I topped mine pecans and maple syrup. Y'all it was so good!
- 1 cup milk I used nonfat vanilla almond milk, you can use any type you choose.
- pinch salt
- ½ cup regular oats you can use quick cooking if you prefer, just reduce cooking time.
- ¼ cup cranberry sauce
- pecans optional
- maple syrup optional
- Bring milk to a bowl over medium heat. Add salt and oats. Mix occasionally and cook for 3-4 minutes until most of the liquid has cooked out. Last, add in cranberry sauce and mix well while continuing to cook. Remove from heat and plate. I topped mine with pecans and maple syrup. The oatmeal is already sweetened from the cranberry sauce, so it won't take much of the syrup. Now, sit back and enjoy. You deserve it!
