Ina Garten Makes Her Favorite Breakfast In The Microwave
Ina Garten is known for her delicious and elegant recipes that are surprisingly doable for the average home chef. When Garten isn't filming her show "The Barefoot Contessa," she's a fan of comforting recipes that are easy to make — and you may be surprised at just how simple her favorite breakfast is.
For breakfast, Garten loves to make oatmeal with a combo of quick-cooking oats, water, salt, milk, and butter, topped off with a little maple syrup, and for maximum convenience, she stays away from the stove. "I make my oatmeal in my microwave — it's so easy!" she says.
Garten gets plenty of use out of her microwave, as her easy method for perfectly tempered chocolate involves popping the bowl in the microwave. And while at-home popcorn machines have become all the rage, Garten loves microwave popcorn — specifically Newman's Own Movie Theater Butter.
