I like mine with a thinner consistancy because I love to dip my toast in it. How do you like yours cooked?

I love my oatmeal on the thinner side. I don't like it too thin, and when it is too thick it reminds me of paste. haha My mother used to make it more on the thicker side but after adding milk and butter it did get thinner.

I have oatmeal as breakfast in the morning, i usually boil them together with some milk but nothing else, and i like to make it a little thicker, so that i have enough energy for a whole morning.Oatmeal is good for health because it contains a lot of dietary fiber, which is good for your digestion and may help you get slim. So i like it very much.

I like mine thick, but easy to stir. Sometimes, though, when I make a bowl and take it to work with me, it gets too thick. When I add milk or fruit to it, I can't stir it and the milk gets splattered all over me! I don't really like it thin at all.

I am the exact opposite. I like thicker oatmeal. I don't like it to be watery at all.

I like mine fairly thick but not as thick as my son likes his - his I would liken to cement! I like it thick and creamy with butter and brown sugar or a little maple syrup on it I do not like milk in my oatmeal. my mother will make hers thick but then pour milk into it (not stirring it up) so there is a mound of oatmeal like an island in a sea of milk.

I do like it thin. I haven't tried the maple syrup in it. But that too sounds yummy!

I prefer my oatmeal to be mixed with sugar,butter and flour and be called a cookie. I don't really care for eating oatmeal as a cereal.I love oatmeal cookies though.

I like it thick with raisins and sometimes a few pecans in it and a little apple. It's very tasty that way!

I'm like goldilocks - not too thick, not too thin. Not too hot, not too cool. I also like to mix in brown sugar, apples, raisins and milk.

I dont eat oatmeal, ew. But my daughter eats it almost every morning for breakfast. i give her the choice of toast and peanut butter, cereal, or oatmeal and she pretty much always picks oatmeal, I make it thick for her so she can pick it up easier with the spoon ;)

I like mine creamy...I do it in the microwave. I put brown sugar, raisins and vanilla soy silk milk on mine...it's delicious. (I am allergic to dairy and have found that soy milk is just as good)

I like to eat oatmeal thick. I use milk on top along with sugar. Sometimes I add butter but not very often. I also like to eat toast with oatmeal but don't dip it. I sure don't eat it often enough and know it's good for lowering cholesterol.

That's why I eat so much of it. Lowering the cholesterol.
