Here's the answer! Overnight Steel Cut Oats. Start to finish, including clean up, I'm done in less than 15 minutes. Say what?! 15 minutes....that's fantastic!
Overnight Steel Cut OatsWhat's In It:
1 c steel cut oats
4 c water
What To Do With It:
Bring all ingredients to a boil over medium-high heat (can use high heat if you're willing to commit to stirring it pretty frequently). Boil for 3 minutes. Remove from heat. Cover and allow to sit on counter overnight, then refrigerate. When you're ready to eat, heat through, add your favorite oatmeal toppings, and serve.
I normally transfer the oatmeal to a storage container and wash my pan right away that night. I can then, in the morning, scoop out what I need and put the rest straight into the fridge. I often make a double batch and it will be good in the fridge for a week, maybe longer....just doesn't last around here. :)
