Oatmeal: Steel Cut Oats Recipe

Oatmeal by the fireMy mom and step-dad eat oatmeal every day for breakfast. Every single day. I can’t say that I like oatmeal enough to do that, but I do love a good bowl of rich Steel Cut Oats Oatmeal topped with fruits and nuts. Yum- now that I could eat at least once a week!

The downside to making steel-cut oatmeal is the amount of time. It’s not an easy, make-before-work type breakfast, unless you try the over-night version. Assume at least 30 minutes of cook time when you’re making this oatmeal- I promise it’s well worth the wait!

This oatmeal is best when made with milk- as it makes it thicker and creamier, but you can easily substitute in water.

When the steel cut oats reach your desired texture place in a bowl and top with nuts and fruits of your choosing. I love chopped walnuts and frozen blueberries or apples. I also usually top with some of the honey from our farm just for a little added sweetness.
