Irish Oatmeal with Cream, Kerrygold Butter, Celtic Salt, Warm Celtic Crossing Liqueur-soaked Golden Raisins, and Toasted Walnuts

by Laura on December 7, 2010

We had house guests this weekend and I was trying to think of something to cook for them for breakfast Saturday morning.  Sandwiched between rich, heavy meals, I wanted something healthy-ish that would be delicious.  I settled on oatmeal, and laid out these accoutrements.  It was a comforting bowl on a wintry morning: creamy oats, sweet cream and butter, plump warm raisins with a little kick, a hint of salt, and a little crunch from the walnuts.  Yum.

If you don’t have Celtic Crossing liqueur, there’s no need to buy a bottle specially.  Use any liqueur you have on hand that’s appealing or Irish whisky, or use fruit juice or a combination of juice and liqueur.  Any delicious salt and butter will do, too.

Serving Suggestions
I served this with a pot of Irish Breakfast tea, and an assortment of winter fruits.
