1. The night before serving, combine in a saucepan: Milk, oats, sugar, cinnamon and apple. Cover pot and refrigerate overnight.2. In the morning, remove pot from refrigerator and stir. Replace cover and heat over medium-low heat for about 4 minutes until creamy; stirring occasionally to prevent from sticking. 3. Add eggs and vanilla; stir constantly with a fork until eggs are no longer shiny and are cooked, about 1-2 minutes. This recipe can easily be adjusted down to 2 servings or up to 5 or 6 or more. Just follow this simple formula: For each serving, use 1 cup milk, 1/2 cup oats and 1 LESS egg than the number of servings (i.e., 1 egg for 2 servings, 4 eggs for 5 servings.) Add sugar, cinnamon, apples and vanilla to taste.
Note: Can be made in the morning without overnight soak; just cook milk/oats mixture a little longer, about 5-6 minutes. Stir frequently to prevent sticking.
