Everyone laughed at me, even the teacher! "Pineapple?! You're weird!" The reactions got worse after I said I also put yogurt in it.
Nowadays, I pride myself in making interesting concoctions for breakfast. Not only do I put pineapple on my cereal, but also applesauce, jam, peaches, etc. One of my daily staples:
Steel Cut Oats with Yogurt, Jam, and Granola
- 1/4 cup steel-cut (pinhead) oats
- 1/3 cup water
- 1/3 cup granola
- 1 cup plain yogurt
- 1 dollop strawberry, pineapple, or fruits of the forest jam
Cover steel-cut oats with water. Nuke on medium for 10-12 minutes. (Put paper plate on top of bowl so it doesn't explode.) Let it sit for 5 minutes or so in the microwave.
Top with yogurt, granola, and jam. A healthy breakfast and very tasty.
Carter at The Kitchenette had a good idea to microwave the jam to 20-30 seconds so it's runny and mixes in better. She also has a really nice photo of her version, made with milk.
