(NEWS CENTER) - Each season inspires new recipes.

Summer is the time for salads, winter is the time for chili or soup.

But fall calls for a certain flavor: pumpkin.

Melissa Kim takes a look at spicing up your autumn appetite.

Makes 3 servings

  • 1 cup rolled or Scottish oats
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 cup puréed pumpkin
  • 2 tablespoons ground flaxseed
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar

1. Preheat your broiler.

2. Bring the milk, water, and salt to a boil. Cook your oats according to the package directions (usually 5-7 minutes). 

3. Once fully cooked, whisk in the butter and pumpkin. Then add in the flaxseed and cinnamon. Whisk well to combine.

4. Separate the oatmeal into three ramekins or oven safe bowls. Divide the brown sugar across the top of the 3 bowls.

5. Place the bowls under your broiler and broil for 2-3 minutes. Watch the oatmeal very closely at this step! Every oven is different and you want to broil it just until the sugar caramelizes.

6. Remove bowls from the oven and serve immediately.
