Mimosa Oatmeal

I’m a fruit-in-my-oatmeal kind of gal.  Sweet and comforting apple cinnamon oatmeal and banana honey oatmeal are my favorites for PJ-lounging mornings.  Sometimes, however, I want an oatmeal that is vibrant and bright – one that kick-starts my day and says, “Today is special!”  That oatmeal is mimosa oatmeal.

A mimosa is a super simple breakfast drink made by mixing orange juice and champagne.   Mimosa oatmeal is also really easy to make!  The secret is replacing the liquid in your oatmeal recipe (typically milk or water) with equal parts champagne and orange juice.  This results in a strongly orange-flavored oatmeal with a champagne finish.

My mimosa oatmeal recipe is baked in a 9″ square baking pan (ideally an orange one) and yields a moist but neither wet nor porridge-like oatmeal.

If you prefer a more liquidy oatmeal, you can use your favorite oatmeal recipe to make mimosa oatmeal by swapping half the liquid with orange juice and half with champagne.  You can also enhance the orange flavor by adding a touch of fresh orange zest before cooking.
