muesli? orOatcakes - recipe thanks to TM's amazing_grace. 120ml boiling water, 1 tsp butter, 1/2 tsp salt, 150g porridge oats - not the instant ones. Stir the salt and butter into the water, add the oats and let sit for about 5 minutes to soak up. Knead on a floured board - the more the mixture is "worked or kneaded" the easier it is to roll. Roll out very thinly and cut into shapes. Bake for 20-25 minutes, turning over once halfway through cooking - they should be pale golden and crisp. Note from amazing_grace: " I like cookie cut rounds with brie, or pickle! Or you can cut round an upturned side plate and cut into triangles; if you do this it is cool to then roll the triangles even more thinly - the edges curl up when cooked which can be fun. ":-))

Oat Stuffing for Poultry 1 large onion (finely chopped), 2 cups rolled oats, 1/4 cup suet, 2 sprigs fresh thyme (chopped), 1 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper. Mix the onion, rolled oats and suet, then add the thyme, salt and pepper - the mixture will be loose; if desired, a little water may be added to combine. :-))

Anzac Biscuits easy to make.

You can mix some with a few eggs some cottage cheese and a packet of your favourite dried soup mix and a dash of vege oil and put into a casserole dish and bake. It makes a vegetarian "meat" loaf.

245sam, Jun 7, 8:48pm
crystalmoon, of course- why didn't I remember this meatloaf that I always put rolled oats in? ? COTTAGE CHEESE MEAT LOAF - 500g lean mince, 1 tbsp prepared mustard, 1/2 cup rolled oats, 1/4 cup tomato sauce, 3/4 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp pepper, 1 egg (lightly beaten), 2 tbsp finely chopped or grated onion, 1 cup (1 x 250g pottle) cottage cheese, 1/4 cup parmesan cheese. Combine all the ingredients, except the parmesan cheese, then press the mixture into a greased 23cm x 15cm loaf tin. Bake at 180°C for 1 hour. Remove from the oven and top with the parmesan cheese. Return to the oven for 10 minutes, then remove from the oven again and allow to stand for about 5 minutes - for ease of cutting. Serve hot or cold. :-))

Oatmeal Slice going into oven as we speak added ried apricots and a little choc chips - yum

I buy rolled oats, add dried fruit - this week cranberries and apricots, enough yoghurt and milk to make a easily stirable mix, and leave overnight in the fridge. In the morning I give it a 20second burst in the microwave, just to take the chill off. Lately I have added gold kiwifruit as they are so cheap at the moment.

gysmo1, Jun 8, 8:18am

happybaby, Jun 22, 1:40pm
use oats instead of breadcrumbs in fried chicken/prawns/schnitzels, etc

suecat, Jun 29, 10:31am
I put them into apple muffins with a tsp of cinamon and half tsp of ground cloves. Just halve the flour and replace with the oats so that they aren't too dry. Gives them a nice texture. Yum! ! ! They freeze well too.

not a cookin thing BUT the birds love porride. i always seem to make more than i need, and put the rest out for the birds. they love it. I also put leftover if enough, in another bowl, cover with gladwrap and put in fridge for next day. it kinda sets and i think nicer. just warm for 2 mins in m/wave. ideal for person on their own. you can even do 2 days.
