This oatmeal is also great the next day! Store leftovers in the refrigerator or freezer in single servings. When reheating, add 1/4 to 1/3 cup milk to each serving and microwave on high for 1 minute. Stir and microwave on high for 1 more minute, or until oatmeal is cooked to your desired consistency. Add more milk, if needed.*
