    SherryKaraoke's Note:

    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.

      Worked very well. I wasn't too sure about the buttermilk, and could detect that buttermilk twang even though I didn't add buttermilk to individual servings. Rich and creamy but not mushy goo. Next time I'll probably use all milk to test the difference. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

      I bought steel cut oats about six months ago and they have been sitting in my cupboard. I decided to make this for my son and I for dinner. Since I never made steel cut oats before I followed the recipe exactly as written other then I used 2% milk and I didn't have buttermilk so just used all milk. I but the sugar and cinnamon in the saucepan when I added the milk as I hadn't read all the directions. I also used Splenda brown sugar blend as that is all I buy. We really enjoyed this. We do have some left over for tomorrow morning. Very good and easy to make.
