Butterscotch Oatmeal

Delicious Butterscotch Oatmeal that is so easy to make! Only 5 ingredients for this family favorite breakfast dish.


  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup quick oats
  • 2 teaspoons butter, optional


  • In a small saucepan, whisk together the milk, egg, brown sugar, and salt.
  • Turn the heat on to medium, and don't go higher than that the whole time you are cooking otherwise it will turn out grainy.
  • Mix in the oats. Stir occasionally. When the oatmeal begins to bubble, cook and stir until thick.
  • When it has reached the consistency you like, remove from heat, and stir in butter until melted.
  • I usually let it sit off the heat with a lid on for a couple minutes so that it gets nice and thick. Serve with milk and fruit!
