Cheesy Oats

And now for something completely cheesy. Westminster brand William and Kate Royal Addition Cheddar, an unabashed attempt to commercially exploit the birth of little George Alexander Louis Windsor. And what better day to review it on than the day before St. Crispin’s Day.

It’s actually a quite nice white cheddar, not too sharp and a little crumbly. What makes all cheddars suitable for oatmeal is the fact that they melt nicely.

Setup: 1/3 cup of stone ground rolled oats, two dinner teaspoons of potato flakes, one cup of broth, salt.  Cook for 10 minutes or so, depending on the exact style of oats.  Add the potato when you take it off the stove..

Results: Quite nice, in an aristocratic weekend-in-the-ancestral-home sort of way. I can see this being served with strong tea, kedgeree, and possibly laverbread. I can hardly wait to see what the next birth brings.
