Directions:
In a large bowl, pour boiling water over oatmeal. Stir in shortening, molasses, brown sugar, and salt. Cool to lukewarm. In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water, and let sit until foamy, about 5 minutes. Add to oatmeal mixture. Stir in enough flour so that dough comes together in a ball and can be handled. (It will be sticky.) Gradually, knead in remaining flour. Place dough in an oiled bowl, turning to coat top, cover with plastic wrap, and let rise until doubled.

Turn out onto a lightly floured surface, and divide in half. Shape each piece into a loaf and place in a greased loaf pan. Cover with a cloth and let rise until doubled. Gently brush with milk and sprinkle with additional oats.

Preheat over to 350F. Bake for 45 minutes or until loaves sound hollow when tapped. Remove from pans and cool on a wire rack.
