I love oats in things. Fruit and oatmeal bars, oatmeal cookies, bread with oats in/on top, hearty cakes or muffins. Any fruit crumble I make must have an oat topping. I even love oat bran for breakfast with salt and a little butter or cheese. But I've never liked sweetened oatmeal for breakfast. I tried this recipe hoping I would like it okay. I liked the honey, and the dried fruit was good (I used dried cherries because it's what I had). I had to use 3/4 milk and 1/4 water instead of powdered milk and water, and I liked the richness of it being made with milk. I did not really like the custardy texture though. The only way I've tolerated breakfast oatmeal in the past was if it was really thin and really sweet, so I actually liked this pretty well considering it's really thick and not really sweet. I won't make it again, but I think this would be a great recipe for a child or elderly person or someone who has trouble keeping weight on (or even just a super picky kid) if they like oatmeal because it's bulked up with the milk and egg.
