Apple Pie Oatmeal

Want an excuse to eat apple pie for breakfast? I have something close for you. My solution? Apples sautéed in cinnamon, nutmeg, and brown sugar that taste like apple pie filling without the pie crust.  Since oatmeal has a lot of fiber, I am easily full until lunchtime with this breakfast.

This is so easy you can make this before work. I did. It’s as easy as dicing up the apples and cooking them in the skillet. No joke. Begin by cooking the oatmeal. While the oatmeal cooks, make the apples.

Dice the apples into small-ish pieces and melt the butter in a small skillet. Like a good Minnesotan, I use honeycrisp. You don’t want anything too tart. Add the sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and apples to the butter. Cook until the apples just begin to soften. I like them a little crunchy, so that’s what I do. If you want them soft, cook them a couple minutes longer. You could just eat the apples straight from the skillet or you can resist and remember you have oatmeal for your apples. Divide the oatmeal into two bowls and top with the apples. And that is how you have apple pie for breakfast.
