Morning Oatmeal Boil Over – How to Prevent!

image from

Have you tried cooking your regular (not instant) oatmeal in the microwave and it boils over everywhere?
What a mess it makes!  Not something to deal with early in the morning.

1.  Place regular oatmeal in bowl, desired amount, but no more than half the bowl can hold.
2.  Add water to cover, also not more than half the bowl can accommodate, and  add dash of salt, stir.
3.  Cover microwave safe bowl with plastic wrap.
4.  Heat on 60% power for about 2 minutes.

This works for me with no mess.

Before I was following the instructions on the back of the package and it was going all over everywhere.  Too much water, and too high of heat is the problem I am thinking.

How do you cook oatmeal? A healthy breakfast should be easy and fast!

I know if I had a microwave like this I would be able to cook oatmeal just perfectly!
