Pumpkin Oatmeal

When you want a hot breakfast that smells like you've been baking, but has the ease and familiarity of your morning cereal, make this oatmeal. It will warm you with its flavors of pumpkin, brown sugar and spices. Mmmmm.


1 can pumpkin puree (15 oz.)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cups water
2 cups milk
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
2 cups quick cooking oatmeal
Maple syrup, Cream, Pecans for garnish


In large saucepan over high heat, combine the pumpkin puree, brown sugar, water, milk, salt, and pumpkin pie spice. Bring to a boil. Add the oatmeal. Turn the heat down and cook according to your oatmeal instructions; stirring often. Garnish with syrup, cream and pecans if desired.
