Buttered Rum Oatmeal

This was published under the title of “Off-Watch Rejuvenator,” to be enjoyed after a cold night watch. It was submitted to The Best of People & Food Cookbook (copyright 1983) by Ernie Copp.

It looks like a intriguing alternative to Killer Oatmeal (although my husband might proclaim me blasphemous for saying so)!

Make a mug of oatmeal and milk.

Sweeten it with some hot buttered rum mix:
1 lb butter
2 lbs dark brown sugar
2 t nutmeg
2 t cinnamon
2 t clover

Add a half jigger of rum.
