Brunch Brulée

I know it looks like a burny, crispety-crunchety accident, but this Berry Chocolate Oatmeal Brulée is SO TASTY.

100_1175We love this recipe, especially because it’s so simple and tastes AMAZING.

YOU WILL NEED:

  • 4 fairly big ramekins (Single-serving baking dishes, about 1 cup each), OR a 1-quart baking dish. Note that whatever you use should be broiler-friendly.
  • 2 cups of instant oats
  • a li’l butter (to grease the dish[es]- you can also use the sprayable oil stuff)
  • 1 cup of frozen berries (we used a mix of raspberries, strawberries, blackberries, and blueberries)
  • 1/2 cup of chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon

WHAT TO DO

  1. Grease the dish(es) with butter.
  2. Cook the oatmeal on the stove, according to the directions.
  3. Dump in the berries and chocolate chips.
  4. Stir it around on low heat, until the berries soften and the chocolate chips have melted.
  5. Plop all that goodness in the baking dish(es), and top it with the brown sugar and cinnamon.
  6. Place in the broiler for about 4 minutes, just until the topping gets dark and crackly.

TASTY BRUNCH TIME WOOOOOOOOO

DONUT TIME

So my wife and I (hehe- she’s my wife now) discovered something very important today.

There is ABSOLUTELY NO WAY to carry a GIANT KNIFE across a kitchen, and not look like a deranged murderer.

We tested this.

With SCIENCE.

We also used science to do something much more preferable- DONUTS.

Click here for the whole recipe, from the Motherload. We used 4 Tablespoons of butter instead of teaspoons, and everything turned out pretty good:

We’ve decided to get a cat.

We’re relatively web-savvy millennial hipsters,

so it’s surprising it even took us this long.
