Oatmeal Brulee

  • 4 cups milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 cups quick-cooking oatmeal
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 6 tablespoons dark brown sugar

Preheat broiler. In a large saucepan, combine the milk, 2 cups of water and the salt and bring to a boil. Sprinkle the oatmeal slowly onto the surface of the liquid so that it does not stop boiling, and boil gently over moderate heat, stirring from time to time, for about 5 minutes. Ladle the cooked oatmeal into indivdual heatproof bowls. Pour 1 to 2 tablespoons of heavy cream around the edge of each bowl and sprinkle the center with 1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar to taste. Place bowls under the broiler and broil until sugar melts and begins to bubble, about 1 minute. Serve hot.

Yield: 6 bowls
