Another Christmas Garnish Oatmeal A’ la North Pole! I’ll admit it…I LOVE to play with my food! (Thus my profession!). I enjoyed the Christmas Tree Garnish so much that I further expanded my Christmas morning oatmeal garnish ideas to include Santa’s hat. Obviously, THIS is how oatmeal is served in the Claus household. Enjoy and Merry Christmas! How to Make a Santa Hat Garnish Cut off one side of a red apple just outside of the core (to Santa hat 2avoid the stem and seeds). Place apple slice on cutting board and trim to the shape of a triangle. Put on top of your oatmeal (or any other food to which you want to add a little holiday cheer). With a pastry bag or zipper sandwich bag, pipe a little Greek yogurt at the top and bottom of the “hat” to create the white fur that trims the real hat. Drizzle with honey or maple syrup if desired.
