How to Make Perfect Instant Oatmeal
Do you manage to boil over your oatmeal in the microwave every. single. time?
Here’s the trick to NEVER boiling over instant oatmeal in the microwave:
- Place oatmeal and 1/2 C water/milk in a bowl in microwave.
- Set your microwave to 2 minutes and then hit the ‘Power’ button.
- Choose 8 or 80% power.
- Then hit start and go deal with your screaming toddler/teen/puppy.
When you think… oh crap! I forgot to watch the oatmeal so it doesn’t boil over…
You’ll remember… oh yeah, it NEVER boils over anymore!
My work is done here.
I’ve tried this on several microwaves. 80% power for 2 minutes seems to work well on lots of ovens. But if it doesn’t work on yours try a different power setting and time combination.
