Inspired by a link on shadesong's journal, I just made my first attempt at Oatmeal Brulee.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup milk
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp. (approximately) salted butter
pinch salt

Brown sugar
Blowtorch

Put oats and salt in microwave-safe bowl. Divide the butter into little bits and distribute it around. Pour in the liquids. Microwave 3 minutes. Sprinkle top with generous amount of brown sugar; torch until the sugar bubbles.

Results: For some reason, milk plus water made a soupier oatmeal than the same volume of water, which is my usual habit. The soupier oatmeal then added its moisture to the brown sugar, so the brulee didn;t get very crunchy. However, it tastes pretty awesome. I will try it again tomorrow morning with a reduced amount of liquid, and see what happens.
