Ingredients

OATMEAL

PEAR AND MAPLE TOPPING

Preparation

OATMEAL

  1. In a saucepan over medium-high heat, toast the oats in the butter for 2 minutes. Add the water and salt. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer gently, uncovered, until the oatmeal thickens and is tender, 25 to 30 minutes, stirring frequently, especially toward the end.

PEAR AND MAPLE TOPPING

  1. Meanwhile, in a skillet over medium-high heat, cook the butter and sugar until they begin to colour. Add the pears and currants. Sauté until the pears are tender and coloured a light gold, about 4 minutes.
  2. Serve the hot oatmeal in bowls. Spoon some of the topping onto each portion. Sprinkle with pecans and drizzle with maple syrup.
