Steel Cut Oatmeal takes a bit longer, but it’s worth it. It is chewy. Tasty. Filling.
Until recently, I had never had Steel Cut Oatmeal (sometimes called Irish Oatmeal), which is crazy since I’m of Irish descent. It takes a little time to make it, but I love the texture and flavor. I’m not a big one for sweet cereals, but if you like sugar in it, you can add a little brown sugar when you are cooking it. My preference, as you can see, is to add bananas and toasted walnuts. I think you will love this simple breakfast.
What You Need
For this recipe, you need steel cut oats (this is different than oatmeal), measuring cups and spoons, a pot, and a spoon for stirring. But what you really want is a good set of pans and a magnificent espresso machine, am I right?
