I Promise I'll Shut Up About The Oatmeal...

after this post. Some of you have inquired about the usage of Balsamic Vinegar Glaze with the oatmeal. Be sure not to use regular balsamic vinegar but rathera balsamic vinegar glaze which is a reduction of your run of the mill balsamic vinegar. It's a bit thick and sticky and really good with fruit or for a variation on your usual dressings. This version is slightly sweet and still slightly tangy. I never would have thought to use it with oatmeal in this way, but it is truly a wonderful pairing.

Just artfully drizzle on the plate before laying down your oatmeal patty then top with desired nuts and fruits.
Enjoy!
