This is so easy to make, and it is delicious! I love the texture of steel cut oats. You can make this the night before and breakfast is ready in the morning.
I like fruit additions and this is especially good with blueberries. A wonderful addition.
Leftovers heat up nicely in the microwave the next morning.

Slow-Cook Steel Cut Oatmeal
1 cup steel cut oats (DO NOT substitute old-fashioned or quick-cooking oats)
4 1⁄2 cups water
1⁄2 teaspoon salt
2 -3 tablespoons butter
1⁄2 cup dried fruit (raisins, prunes, apricots, dates) (optional)
Place all ingredients in a 2 quart slow cooker. (If you want to make a smaller amount please use a smaller crock pot or crockette. This won’t work in a 6 quart cooker).
Cover and cook on LOW 6-8 hours.
It might form a “crust” around the outside. Just scrape it down with a spoon and stir.
Love this recipe. It’s one that I’ve memorized because it’s so easy. This is my go-to breakfast recipe for weekends and I love how flexible it is–I’ve used bacon, sausage, ham, added mushrooms, and have also added extra onion.
