Love Long-Cooking Oatmeal? Hate Stirring? Use Your Crockpot



My hubby loves the oatmeal that takes 40 minutes of constant stirring until it's cooked. (example is McCann's Steel Cut Oat Meal).

Now he can use a small crockpot, 4 cups cold water, 1 cup oats and set it on low just before going to sleep.

6 hours later, an entire pot of perfectly cooked oatmeal.

    I have been cooking oatmeal this way for years. I use 2 cups steel-cut oats add 8 c. water and a generous dash of salt. Then I cut up dried fruit (about 1 c) and toss into the crock pot. I divide the leftovers into freezer containers, then thaw and microwave portions as needed. - by KALAJIJO
