    papergoddess's Note:

    I love the texture of steel cut oats. You can make this the night before and breakfast is ready in the morning. I like fruit additions, but my kids do not, so I've listed them as optional. Also, it may sound like a lot of water, but trust me, I've experimented..

      I have been making this oatmeal since I first saw the recipe on the the recipezaar website in 2007. I use 4 scant cups water (maybe more like 3/4 cup) plus the 1/2 cup, 2T butter, 1/2t salt, and it cooks up perfectly in 8 hours. In fact, after 8 hours if I have time, I usually just turn the crockpot off, stir, and let it sit. Then I put it into a 1.5 quart casserole dish so it can start to cool and set. Then I put the glass top on and pop it into the fridge. After it's totally set, I cut into portions (4-5) and put in containers. It freezes beautifully. Not a big fan of sweet oatmeal so either have plain, or my favorite with a big spoonful of peanut butter mixed in - oh my goodness, it is delicious!

      Did this this morning, after reading all of the reviews last night. I was nervous - would my crockpot cook hotter? faster? Should I add the butter? When should I add the fruit? What fruit? Will it burn? What if I forget the non-stick spray? Oh, there are just so many things to go wrong. I shouldn't be such a doubter. It turned out great! I, of course, forgot the non-stick spray, but it turned out to be ok. Clean up wasn't bad. I cooked 1 cup oats, 4.5 cups water, just a dash of salt substitute, no butter, and 1/2 cup of dried cranberries. Then cooked it on low for exactly 7 hours. Texture was perfect. Creamy with a little bit of snap to some of the oatmeal. I added a little bit of honey to taste. Next time (and there will be a next time after I finish off this batch), I'll probably put the dried cranberries on top after I've served it in the bowl. It seemed like they didn't have much flavor after sitting in the hot oatmeal for 7 hours. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

      This works very well. A little mushy, but easy. Thank you!
