I love steel cut oats. I usually soak them overnight before cooking. Speeds up the process so they will cook in about ten minutes.

Steve doesn't want milk on the top.....is that "normal"?
We always had a splash of milk on the oatmeal to cool the edges enough so we could eat it without scorching our gizzards!

Now that it is soup season I want to try making oatmeal soup. I have seen Scottish, Mexican and Colombian soup recipes that use oatmeal as the starch in a tomato or milk based vegetable soup.

You've got to cook them in milk. Otherwise, you're just making paste. :)

Cut to the chase. I'm putting butterscotch on my oatmeal. Immediately! :) Excellent idea.

My Krups rice cooker has an oatmeal setting, and the manual has a recipe for apple spice oatmeal with almond milk. I just load everything into the rice cooker, set the timer for 30 minutes, and go take my shower. By the time I'm showered, shaved and dressed, the oatmeal is ready, and the cooker will keep it warm pretty much indefinitely.

I usually use McCanns but my regular groshree store didn't have itso I ended up with a carton of Flahavan's. It's all good.

My Mom always used apple juice as the liquid for cooking oatmeal. Very good!

That sounds perfect for this time of year!

Now you've got me thinking, apple cider, chopped apple, cinnamon, nutmeg, a few chopped walnuts, a drizzle of maple syrup and maybe a small scoop of vanilla ice cream instead of milk! Oh my!

I typically flavor oatmeal with maple syrup, apricot or strawberry jams or frozen blueberries and sugar.

aTK had a segment on this and works great. Measure the oats and water and place in a pan. Bring to a boil, cover and let sit overnight. Next morning adjust the water and reheat to a boil. Tastes great.
