Hearty Sweet Potato OatmealBy Shavise GlascoeWith chilly mornings among us, the last thing I want to eat after I wake up from a warm bed is a bowl of cold cereal.
I desperately needsomething hearty to get me through my morning (along with nearly an entire pot of coffee, but that’s a different story). So, in searching for something a little more filling, I played around in the kitchen with ingredients that I already had on hand and came up with this oatmeal recipe. Not only is it yummy, but it can also be prepared ahead of time which is a win-win in my book.
So exactly what is a ‘Harvest Oatmeal’? Well to make it very simple, it's an old-fashioned oatmeal recipe mixed with a mashed sweet potato, an assortment of spices, and topped with rosemary brown sugar walnuts. The combination reminds me so much of autumn and Thanksgiving thanks to the warming spices in this dish, so I decided to call it Harvest Oatmeal.
If you are a lover of breakfast, oatmeal, sweet potatoes, fall or good food, this recipe is a must-try!
