Have You Heard of Quaker® Steel Cut Oatmeal?
I got a sample of the new Quaker® Steel Cut Quick 3-Minute Oatmeal from BzzAgent. I’m always happy to receive a package from them, because then I can say that I #GotItFree!!
I made an envelope of the oatmeal, as directed and wasn’t really happy, at first. It was very thick and very sticky…not the oatmeal I’m used to from Quaker®. I called the company directly and asked them if there were other methods to prepare this. For one, I don’t like making my meal in the microwave and two, it just didn’t come out very well. I asked the lady, if I could just add hot water and let it sit, like the other ones and she said “Sure, it just might take a little bit longer than you are used to, because of the different cut.” That’s fine with me. I tried it that way and it turned out great. This is perfect to have for breakfast and to just add some blueberries or strawberries to it for a little extra pizzazz! I was very happy with the product (once I learned how to do it) and would definitely recommend.
Here’s Some More Info:
Is breakfast starting to feel like “been there, done that” meal? Bagels? Blah. Strudel? So-so. Stale cupcakes? Hey, we’ve all been there. If you’re ready for a breakfast makeover, allow us to introduce NEW Quaker® Steel Cut Quick 3-Minute Oatmeal.
Each convenient pouch provides a hearty texture and nutty taste in just 3 minutes. Pour the oats into a bowl, add water and microwave. That’s it! It’s stick-to-your-ribs goodness your whole family can enjoy even on the busiest mornings.
Because they’re cut instead of rolled, steel-cut oats have more of a thick, satisfying whole-grain texture, plus a delicious flavor! Blueberries & Cranberries create the perfect combo with real pieces of fruit, or satisfy your sweet tooth with a dash of sugar and spice in Brown Sugar & Cinnamon, which is made with brown sugar and cinnamon.
