Creamy Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal topped with brown sugar, cinnamon and pecans for an easy breakfast to enjoy as you start your day.
I am one of those cooks that often throw things together to create a meal when I am not developing a recipe for MT. Once I try it and it comes out amazing, I kick myself that I didn’t write down the ingredients. That is how the recipe for this Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal began.
I had a stash of pumpkin puree leftover in the refrigerator from my No-Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake that I wanted to use up. One morning I started throwing things together to make Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal for breakfast for the kids and I. I sprinkled it with brown sugar, a dash of cinnamon and placed it in the broiler for a couple minutes to get a nice golden caramelized crust. From the first bite, I was in love with this recipe. I quickly wrote down what I used and new I needed to go back and make this again with proper measurements. I played with it a few times to come up with this incredible recipe for Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal. It is creamy and delicious, perfect for any pumpkin lover. You can even make a large batch and put it in containers to have some go to heat and serve breakfasts for those busy mornings.
I would totally eat this for dessert too with a dollop of ice cream on top. I haven’t tried that yet, but I think I might.
With Thanksgiving just around the corner, this would be an easy Thanksgiving morning breakfast to enjoy while watching the parade and getting ready for your Thanksgiving feast.
