Quaker Rolled Oats mixed with eggnog and yogurt, and refrigerated overnight to make a festive holiday breakfast that takes only a couple minutes prep at night and is ready to eat when you are.
One of my favorite memories growing up was the hot breakfasts my mom would make for us. Especially during holiday breaks from school.
I was just sure I would make a hot breakfast for my kids every single day. Pfft. Yeah, I don’t. Mostly because I am so busy grabbing coats, and shoes, and putting out fires (sometimes literal) that I feel too overwhelmed in the mornings.
But then the guilt pours on. During the holiday season when my kids have time off of school and we can actually eat breakfast together, and plan fun outings, or reminisce about past holidays, I want to eat breakfast together. I love eating together. My hubby works restaurants so he works a lot of nights, so breakfasts are sometimes the only time we have to eat together.
So I found a solution. A very festive, very tasty solution: Overnight oats! But more specifically Overnight EggNog Oatmeal.
And um…hello…how cute is this container of oats? That scarf, and those winter trees. Don’t you just feel so festive? This fun seasonal packaging is available at your nearest Target store for a Limited Time Only. So do what I did, and head over and pick up a canister or two. And, use this coupon to save some money on it.
Seriously you guys, this breakfast is like a dream come true for me because it takes mere minutes to throw together at night, and is ready to be eaten in the morning, no matter what time we wake up.
And it is the perfect way to bring our family together because I just create a topping bar that everyone can use to customize their oatmeal to their preference. No whining. No complaining. Total bliss.
And it is eazy peazy to achieve maximum results. Simply mix together the oats, egg nog (use milk or cream if you don’t like eggnog), and a vanilla or honey flavored greek yogurt, put a lid on, and refrigerate over night!
Then in the morning when you are ready to serve it, create a topping bar with festive holiday toppings like candied nuts, berries, peppermints, and chocolate chips. Let everyone customize as they see fit!
I personally just love the egg nog flavor plain with a little touch of whipped cream, okay….if I am being totally honest, then maybe some chocolate too. But my kids like to load on the toppings. My kids thought it was a blast to eat with these peppermint spoons! Totally impractical, but we’re creating memories people!
Oatmeal is definitely a big part of my childhood memories! Hot cereal was a regular, but I wanted to make it even hotter (you could serve it cold, it is still delicious)by amping up the festive factor, and making it easy!
