Create your "Best Bowl" recipe for a hearty breakfast with Quaker® Oats!
Right now the breakfast endcap at Target is full of best bowl inspiration! Anything you could want to step up your morning breakfast routine. Since I already love enjoying a bowl of Maple & Brown Sugar Quaker® Oats in the morning I thought a natural take on the tasty bowl would be a sweet treat – like a pineapple upside down cake!

So not only did we pick up some Quaker® Oats, but we grabbed a can of pineapple slices and a small jar of maraschino cherries.

Then to assemble our bowl of Pineapple Upside Down Oatmeal, I laid out pineapple slices and cherries on a cookie pan and sprinkled them generously with brown sugar. I popped that into the oven and broiled on high. While those sweet slices were caramelizing in the oven I added milk and a splash of imitation rum extract to a package of Maple & Brown Sugar Quaker® Oats and popped it in the microwave. Once the oatmeal was done, I pulled the caramelized pineapple slices out of the oven and popped them right on top!
