Right now, we're working through a giant sack of organic steel cut oats we got at Costco. DH likes cereal or Greek yogurt for breakfast in warm weather months but likes oatmeal from October through just about March or April. Thank goodness, because cereal and Greek yogurt are pricey and he goes through that stuff like a Hoover! I did the oats in the crockpot at first, but decided the stovetop kind was just better. Our recipe is to toast 2 cups of steel cut oats with about 2-3 tablespoons of butter until golden and toasty, and then add in 4 cups of hot water. Once it comes to a violent boil, knock the heat back to a simmer, cover with a lid and let it go for about 20 minutes. Then stir in a pinch of salt and 2 cups of milk. We've used regular milk, coconut milk, almond milk - its all good! Sometimes I will replace 1 cup of milk with a cup of canned pumpkin. Either way stir it in and simmer a few more minutes until its nice and creamy. It is SO good this way! I keep bowls of cinnamon brown sugar, raisins, and toasted nuts on the kitchen table so DH can help himself in the morning. I just keep the oatmeal in the fridge and he scoops himself out a bowl in the morning and reheats it with a little hot water and a minute or two in the microwave. Keeps him full for hours.
