Steel-Cut Oatmeal

Sub-zero temperatures in Boise had me craving oatmeal. These are steel-cut oats, a very different animal from the Quaker quick-cooking oats, and much more filling. The water-to-oats ratio is higher for steel-cut oats than regular oats (3-to-1), and they take a little longer to cook. These warm oats were sprinkled with a little sugar and milk....and served up for dinner.

I have three teenagers at home. We cook the oatmeal the night before while cleaning the kitchen. Then the kids can microwave it in the moring, a lot cheaper than the sugar coated cereals at the store.
