    cipherbabe's Note:

    This is from McCann’s website. I love that you can use the microwave and not have to worry about scorching your pot on the stovetop. Of course, you can always use a double boiler, but that can take a while. I always enjoy steel cut oats because they are more nutritious than rolled oats and have a nice, nutty texture. Note: Cooking times may have to be adjusted for your microwave oven wattage. I have 1000 watts and had to cook 5 minutes covered and 11 minutes uncovered.

    1. 1
      Mix oats with water in a 2-quart glass microwaveable dish. (The size of the bowl is important because it needs to be large enough to allow the oats to bubble without spilling over.).
    2. 2
      COVER and place the dish in the microwave oven on high for 5 minutes.
    3. 3
      Stir. Cook UNCOVERED for another 5 minutes.

      Utter fail. 5 minutes covered in the microwave equaled 90% of it spilling over the rim of the huge bowl I had it in. I must have a mighty-powerful microwave. You might want to try fewer minutes at first, and watch it closely!

      This was my first time cooking steel cut oats. I want to try it in the crockpot but this fit the bill for an unexpected batch for breakfast. I cooked covered for 5 minutes and uncovered for 12 minutes and it was probably firmer than it should have been but we both like it that way. Thanks!
