How To Make Steel Cut Oatmeal
Start your day with a hearty and filling steel cut oatmeal simply made with gluten-free oats and milk mixed together for a delicious breakfast.
In a large saucepan, combine the water and milk. Bring the mixture to a simmer over medium heat. In the meantime, melt the butter or warm the olive oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium heat.
Once the butter is sizzling or the oil is shimmering, add the oats and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden and fragrant, around 2 minutes. This toasting step greatly enhances the flavor of the oats.
Stir the oats into the simmering water/milk mixture. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer gently for about 20 to 25 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the mixture is very thick.
Stir in the salt. Continue to simmer the mixture, stirring occasionally and reducing heat as necessary to prevent scorching on the bottom, until almost all of the liquid is absorbed for about 10 minutes.
Remove from heat and let the oatmeal rest for 5 minutes before serving. Season to taste with additional salt, pepper, and optional spices. Stir in any mix-ins that you like.
Portion oatmeal into bowls and add any toppings you like. Let any extra oatmeal cool completely before covering and refrigerating.
Mix-in ideas: grated cheese or nutritional yeast, a drizzle of additional olive oil or pat of butter, sautéed veggies or greens, sun-dried tomatoes, red pepper flakes, and/or ground spices Topping ideas: toasted chopped nuts or seeds, fried/poached/scrambled eggs, and/or lightly dressed fresh greens
