Lise in Indiana's Note:
Here is Alton's method for making a nice creamy bowl of hearty steel-cut oats. His recipe adapts perfectly to overnight soaking. I followed the recipe through adding the boiling water, then cover it (heat off) and head to bed. In the morning, I add the milk and simmer for 10 minutes. Delicious!

- 1In a large saucepan, melt the butter and add the oats. Stir for 2 minutes to toast.
- 2Add the boiling water and reduce heat to a simmer. Keep at a low simmer for 25 minutes, without stirring.
- 3Alternately, after adding the boiling water,cover the saucepan and remove from the heat. Allow to sit overnight on the counter. In the morning, proceed as directed below.
- 4Combine the milk and the buttermilk (or yogurt) with the oatmeal. Stir gently to combine and cook for an additional 10 minutes.
- 5Spoon into a serving bowl and top with additional milk or buttermilk, brown sugar, and cinnamon.
- 6Feel free to garnish or sweeten as desired: chunky applesauce or fruit conserves are great, as is maple syrup, or add dried fruit to the oats and soak both overnight - sweetens the oats ever so slightly.
