1/5 Photos of Steel Cut Oatmeal
I found this on Alton Brown's Good Eats and it is delicious. Adding the step of toasting with butter really adds to the flavor. Plus, adding the (already) boiling water to the toasted grains and letting it cook without constant attention (like a pilaf!) makes preparation soooo easy. And the buttermilk adds richness to the mix. My family loves the hearty flavor and texture of Scottish (steel-cut) oats, and this is the best recipe I've ever found.
